LISTENERS AT BETHANY

The listeners who stood in sorrow's gloomHeard Jesus thank his Father and demand,"Take ye away the stone." Before the tombThey heard him call to Lazarus, bound handAnd foot, "Come forth." They saw the dead appearAnd heard the words, "Loose him, and let him go."How many of the fettered, standing near,Were also loosed from bonds, we do not know,But those who were receptive gained in thoughtAn impetus to rise from lethargy,To cast off bindings that false concepts wrought,And stand forth newly vivified and free.

We are at Bethany in that same hourWhen we perceive Truth's resurrecting power.
