John 11:20–27 (Listen)

20 So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary remained seated in the house. 21 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.1 Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.”

Hymn: TLH 213: Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise Organ Audio

1. Hail the day that sees Him rise
To His throne above the skies
Christ, awhile to mortals given
Reascends His native heaven

2. There the glorious triumph waits
Lift your heads, eternal gates
Christ hath conquered death and sin
Take the King of glory in

3. See the Heav’n its Lord receives,
Yet He loves the earth He leaves,
Though returning to His throne,
Still He calls mankind His own

4. See! He lifts His hands above
See! He shows the prints of love
Hark! His gracious lips bestow
Blessings on His church below

5. Still for us He intercedes
His prevailing death He pleads
Near Himself prepares our place
Harbinger of human race

6. There we shall with Thee remain
Partners of Thy endless reign
There Thy face unclouded see
Find our heaven of heavens in Thee
