Take Away the Stone, Take Off the Bandages

(Inspired by John 11: 17-44)
Dead in the grave
Smellin' in the cave
Bandages to wrap me
A Stone to cover me.
Death sentence by a killer disease
Positive diagnosis
Negative consequences
Death sentence by chronic dis-ease.
Called out from the depths of my grave
Called out from the depths of my cave
Called out from the depths of my pain
Called out from the depths of my strain
Jesus showed up.
I'm getting up.
Jesus showed out.
I'm getting out.
Jesus shed tears.
I'm overcommin' my fears.
Jesus, Jesus wept and cried.
I'm kept, not denied.
I can live positive.
I can live productive.
I can live constructive.
I can live positive.
Unwrap my guilt.
Loose me for forgiveness.
Unwrap my regret.
Loose me for growth.
Resurrection from my grave.
Reconciliation from the cave.
Restoration is my destination.
Recognition is my ammunition.
