Bosom of Abraham

Bosom of Abraham



There once was a rich man; rich as man could ever be

He dressing in the finest of linens; and lived a life of luxury



While Lazarus the beggar, lay outside; covered in sores

Desiring scrapes off his table and crumbs from his floor



Then, one day the angels came; taking Lazarus to Heavenís gate

The rich man also died; but he didnít suffer the same fate



Seen from the depths of Hell; the rich man calls to Abraham

Have pity on me Father; from thy bosom send Lazarus down



From the tip of his finger; a drip of water to cool my tongue

Iím in agony from the fire; O please, bid Lazarus to come



Son, your life was full of good things; Lazarusí of agony and pain

Now yours, a time of torment; to Lazarus comfort reigns



Besides, a chasm lies between us; which neither side can cross

Then send him to my fatherís house; for my brothers are lost



They have Moses and the prophets; let the five listen to them

O please, Father send Lazarus; they will repent unto him



If Moses and the prophets; canít impel them to turn their head

Neither will they be persuaded; though a man rose from the dead
