Go Tell Mary  4:03

from Brother Sun

Lazarus lay in his tomb asleep
Mary swoons at the Saviour's feet
And i'm in the kitchen, fixing something to eat again
And I've been picking up the slack since God knows when

   Go tell Mary
   Go tell Mary
   I don't want to be Martha no more

I went to the Lord out of love for you
To see if there's something that he could do
to bring back that brother of yours and mine
Because it hurts my heart to see you grieving all the time
 
   Go tell Mary
   Go tell Mary
   I don't want to be Martha no more

Am I the rock holding up our house?
Is it my job to keep us from falling down?
Lord, I'll domy duty with joy someday
I want to walk in the light and chase the darkness away

   Go tell Mary
   Go tell Mary
   I don't want to be Martha no more
