Get Up

There is a story in the bible about a young man
His mother was crying as she walked with him in the sand

There was a coffin that was being carried
Her son was inside, his destiny to be buried

Jesus was approaching the towns gate, but before passing by
His heart went out to her as he told her; “don’t cry”

Then He went up and touched the coffin as the crowds gathered around
“Get Up” He said, the dead man did and the news spread throughout the town

A touch and two simple words filled with faith I have seen
My heart leaped with joy, as I read Luke 7:11 through seventeen
