Lyrics

Chorus:

Lazarus, poor Lazarus
All covered with those sores
Lazarus, poor Lazarus
Dying at the door
While the rich man drank and ate
He was dying near his plate
But that rich man failed to act that day

V1:
Blessed with great things
Dressed in purple linen
The rich man got blinded by his way
While feasting abundantly
Another ached sorely
With dogs attending him that day

Chorus:

Lazarus, poor Lazarus
All covered with those sores
Lazarus, poor Lazarus
Dying at the door
While the rich man drank and ate
He was dying near his plate
But that rich man failed to act that day

V2:
When both their time had come
Lazarus made the happy hum
The rich man was sad and blue
Not sharing what he had
He was selfish; he was mad
He served his wealth and not the Lord




Chorus:

Lazarus, poor Lazarus
All covered with those sores
Lazarus, poor Lazarus
Dying at the door
While the rich man drank and ate
He was dying near his plate
But that rich man failed to act that day

V3:
So in thinking now today
What can we take away?
Serve money or serve our fellow man?
For those who hold will lose
So step in others’ shoes
Give generously and receive it back tenfold

Chorus:

Lazarus, poor Lazarus
All covered with those sores
Lazarus, poor Lazarus
Dying at the door
While the rich man drank and ate
He was dying near his plate
But that rich man failed to act that day

While the rich man drank and ate
He was dying near his plate
But that rich man failed to act that day
Don’t be that rich man who failed to act that
day
