Tune: "Walking in Sunlight"
Tab-i-tha was al-so known as Dor-cas.
She lived in Jop-pa long, long a-go.
The poor she cared for, was al-ways help-ful,
And for the wi-dows clothes she did sew.
One day she died and they were so sad for
Nev-er a-gain would they see their fri-end.
They called for Pe-ter. Pe-ter could help them.
Such a good life should sure-ly not end.
Pe-ter went to the room where they'd laid her.
It was up-stairs. He fol-lowed them there.
Wi-dows were weep-ing, show-ing the robes
She lov-ing-ly made with her ten-der care.
Pe-ter sent them out, knelt down and prayed.
He said, "Tab-i-tha I tell you a-ri-se.
He called the o-thers. They came in-side and
Pe-ter pre-sent-ed Dor-cas a-live!

Thank you for the dorcas song. I will be singing it to my Sunday school class tomorrow . I have never heard a song about Dorcas. So you can imagine how happy I was to find this one . Thank you for going to the trouble to writing this . Many thanks
I challenged a friend to come up with a song with my name in it, and told her if she found one I would sing it all the time. I never dreamed she would be successful; but she found your song here. I love it and look forward to learning it. It's such a beautiful story, but we never hear it past our childhood Sunday School classes. Now I have a reason and a way to share the story all the time. Thank you for this gift.
