“Believest thou this?”

“Believest thou this?”

Raising of Lazarus.

(The Gospel History, Section 83)

… and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall never die. Believest thou this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I have believed that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, even he that cometh into the world. And when she had said this, she went away, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is here, and calleth thee.

“Believest thou this?”

(The Saviour of the World, Vol V Book V Poem LXXVII)


Believest thou this?” “Yea, Lord,” said she,
Arrived through portals of the grave
At the very gate of Life where He
Stood holding out the life He gave
To all who knew that life to crave:
“Yea, Lord,” she said, scarce yet aware
Of Christ’s omnipotence to save,—
“Thou art the Christ, I know; and share

In the hope Thou bring’st from God to heal the world’s despair.”

Straight runs she home, assured and eased
Of the soreness of her rebel mind;
And whispers Mary, inly pleased
With the message to her lips assigned,—
“The Master has come; well He divined
How life hath gone from us; saith He,—
‘I am the Life, He that doth bind
The dead and living; both shall be

Alive for evermore, believe they but in Me.’”

St. John xi. 26, 27, 28.
