Bethany

BETHANY:

D                       Em                    C#dim                    D
Jesus came to Bethany having nowhere to lay his head
–             Bm                            A                       G               D
Raising Lazarus up from the dead while the saints were weeping
–              D                               Em                C#dim                      D
And while Martha served and some reclined, Mary anointed His feet
–               Bm                                A             G              D
With her ointment so costly and sweet in a house of feasting

              D C#dim Em             C#dim D
We are Ma- r   –   tha, we are Ma   –  ry
–            F#             G                     A    Em    D
We are Lazarus in resurrection in Be – tha – ny
–           Bm    G              A    A7   D
We all serve Him, as we tes – ti – fy
D F#m Bm                Em                       C#dim D
Ab-so-lutely pouring all our love on the crucified

I was a sinner cleansed from leprosy, whom the word of the Savior restored
In a village so outwardly poor and full of man’s affliction
Yet enjoyment came and gold abounds in the spirit to realize
Making Bethany in man’s eyes an utter contradiction

So it came from resurrection life, a genuine dwelling of rest
In the place where we’ve given our best for His satisfaction
Here we love the Lord at any cost, serve Him so diligently
And our testimony ever will be our main attraction

C                              G           Dm                        C
O Lord, how I have fallen because of my great sin
C                           G                   F                 C
You may have forsaken me but here I am again
C                         G                       F                G
Standing on the shoreline right where I did begin
F                  D     G
Oh where do I begin again

C G Dm C
Ooh
G C
Ooh

Casting nets on deep blue seas, my purpose yet unknown
Then light from the heavens came and turned my name to stone
But with all my confidence, to failure I was prone
Oh how could I atone?

Em   Dm   C                         Dm                        G Dm C
Lord, You know; You know I love you though I’m fallen
Em  Dm   C                      Dm                        G
Lord, You know; when I denied you how my heart had me deceived
Em  G   Am                      G                             Em
Lord, You know; for Your forgiveness now my heart to you is calling
Am G   C                        Dm                          G                                   CG  C Dm G
But I know that You still loved me when You called to Your disciples and me
Em Dm C Dm G
Oh and me

(motif)
C Em Am C Dm G C
C Em Am C Dm Gno5 G C

If loving me He suffered, and to the cross was nailed
Would He cease from loving me just because I failed?
In my utter vanquishment, His heart’s love He unveiled
His love for me prevailed
