When I see an amazing sunrise
When I see the sun slip away for the day
When I am reunited with a dear friend
When I must leave a sweet friend
When I hear a baby cry
When I hear a baby laugh
When I see the glory of God's creation
When the dark of the night surrounds me
When someone sings "Great is Thy Faithfulness"
When someone sings "Amazing Grace"
When a baby is born
When a dear one dies
Yes--except for these few exceptions---my tears have all dried up--I cry no more.
In a moment of worship
In the beauty of a song
In the thrill of adventure
In the glory of the mountaintop
In the rush of the tides
In the memory of sweet times
In the promise of eternity
In the warmth of home
In the beauty of nature
In the arms of a sweet grand
In a moment of perfect peace
In the presence of Jesus
THOSE--are the only times I cry now
Perhaps there are more tears than I suspect--but there is a difference-
a stark difference in the tears of today and the tears of yesterday.
Yesterday's tears came from a broken heart--the death of something precious--the end of a season. Today's tears---thankfully--mostly come from a deep joy---a profound peace---a sure knowledge---of The One who has held every tear--counted them--and faithfully holds me as I cry.
Praise Him--for my tears.
You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.
