Bethany and welcome too

Friends around the table

Place of ease and happiness

Eat what you are able


Familiar faces Lazarus

Brought back from the dead

Living proof before your eyes

Death’s defeat instead


Love’s anointing given

Perfume fills the room

Jesus gentle patient

Conscious of his doom


Soon his living breathing frame

Extended on a cross

Then wrapped in shroud and buried

Cries out for this world’s loss


Wherever death is meted out

The suffering goes on

The foolishness of humans

Visited on the Son


But the fragrance of his living days

The sorrow of his death

Bursts out anew to anoint the world

The Holy Spirit’s breath
