"TALITHA CUMI"

Verse 1
There was a ruler, Jairus by name
He had heard of Jesus’ fame.
He came to Him and fell on his knees,
"My daughter is dying, oh help us please."

Verse 2
Just then a man came running and said;
"It’s too late, your daughter is dead."
But Jesus said, "Let’s go and see.
Be not afraid, Jairus, only believe."

Bridge 1
In the house everyone was weeping.
Jesus told them, "She’s only sleeping."
Then the people started laughing Him to scorn.
But they all left at His command,
Then taking Jairus’ daughter’s hand,
Jesus spoke to her while they all mourned,

Chorus 1
And He said,
"Talitha Cummi, little girl, arise."
At these words she opened her eyes
And saw Jesus, loving and wise
Saying, "Talitha Cummi, I say unto thee
Little girl, arise."

Verse 3
Her daddy was so happy inside
To see his little girl was alive
Jesus helped her to get on her feet
And told her daddy to get her something to eat

Bridge 2
And the story remains forever
To help us all remember, Jesus’ touch is just the same today.

Chorus 2
"Talitha Cummi, little girl, arise."
At these words she opened her eyes
And saw Jesus, loving and wise
Saying, "Talitha Cummi, I say unto thee
Little girl …

Chorus 3
"Talitha Cummi, little girl, arise."
At these words she opened her eyes
And saw Jesus, loving and wise
Saying, "Talitha Cummi, I say unto thee
Little girl, arise.

Talitha Cummi,
Talitha Cummi, little girl, arise.
