Tears

Jesus wept to see Jerusalem

Knowing well how he would be destroyed

Knowing too the fate that lay in store

In days to come of Roman force

Employed

 

And when the worst was done

And he had died

And women at the tomb

And Mary cried

He comforted the woman in her grief

And to us all the Lord

Now brings relief

 

The worst that can happen is we die

And suffer loss of hope

Forever cry

But Jesus in his risen life portends

The end of sorrows

End of pointless ways

Brings us life

Promise of endless days

 

Life is too lovely

Just to end

It is transformed

Another world we’ll find

If goodness is its own reward

And love the greatest joy

The tears of Christ were not in vain

Death shall not destroy
