I use to cry when I was offended,
when I was disciplined,
and when my heart went unattended.
I cried when I was
mad because I thought no one cared.
I cried when I got in trouble
because my sight was visually impaired.
I cried when my heart needed mending,
because I thought there was no ending.
When I met my Lord Jesus Christ
my tears changed.
Now I am never offended,
I love his discipline,
and my heart is always mended.
Now I can live among the living.
He has saved me from myself,
and the tears that were never ending.
I will tell, and show others
how He wipes my tears.
I will pray and hope they understand,
He is the only one
that can take away their fears.
I no longer cry to an empty space,
He always wipes my tears from my face
with His riches through His glorious grace.
Psalm 116:8 For you, O LORD, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
