Garrison Doles: Song Lyrics

Mary Magdalena

(click title to read lyrics)
Words and music by Garrison Doles

Mary Magdalena weeping and forlorn
They took my lord away I don’t know where they’ve laid him
Mary Magdalena stand outside the tomb
Peer into the lonely shadows
Are there angels
Angels
Waiting where his body had lain
And is no more

Mary Magdalena tears upon the sand
Who are you looking for
Mary Magdalena turning to reply
Tell me where he is I will attend him
Only a gardener
A gardener
Waiting where his body had lain
And is no more

She cried where is my lord
And he said Mary
O where is my lord
And he just said Mary
Where, where is my lord 
And Jesus said Mary
Suddenly
Oh Rabbi
Now I can see
That you are always here
With me

Mary Magdalena precious are your tears
Precious is the longing of your heart
Mary Magdalena first upon this morn
Go and tell my brothers you have found me
There was Jesus
Jesus
Waiting where his body had lain
And is no more
And is no more
