Album: BIBLE BONANZA  |  Song lyrics to: MARY AND MARTHA

Music & Lyrics: Jeremy Spencer


Verse 1
Martha in the kitchen, serving with her hands,
Occupied for Jesus with her pots and pans.
Loving Him, yet fervered, burdened to the brim
Careful, troubled Martha, occupied for Him.

Verse 2
Mary on the footstool, eyes upon her Lord,
Occupied with Jesus, drinking in His Word.
This one thing is needful, all is strangely dim;
Loving, resting Mary, occupied with Him.

So may we be like Mary, choose the better part:
Eyes upon His face, giving Him first place,
Treasuring His words within our heart.

Verse 3
Spending time with Jesus in communion sweet,
Learning from His wisdom, sitting at His feet.

Repeat Chorus twice

Treasuring His words within our heart.
