THEN SINGS MY SOUL: TEARS ARE A LANGUAGE

Tears are a Language God Understands

Often you wonder why tears come into your eyes
And burdens seem to be much more than you can stand.
But God is standing near. He sees your falling tears
And tears are a language God understands.

God sees the tears of a brokenhearted soul.
He sees your tears and hears them when they fall.
God weeps along with man and He takes him by the hand.
Tears are a language God understands.

Then grief has left you low it causes tears to flow
When things have not turned out the way that you had planned.
But God won’t forget you His promises are true.
And tears are a language that my God He understands.

God sees the tears of a brokenhearted soul.
He sees your tears and hears them when they fall.
God weeps along with man and He takes him by the hand.
Tears are a language God understands
Tears are a language that my God He understands.

I copied the lyrics from this SITE – the devotional was good, too.

  1. Beautiful words! I have liked that song for years. It has always meant a lot to me because I am a “soggy” Christian….I cry very easily…for joy, for grief, and for thankfulness at what my God has done for me.
