THEN SINGS MY SOUL: WHEN I CRY

When I Cry
Written by Benjy Gaither and Marshall Hall

Makin’ a list of all of the good things You’ve done for me
Lord, I’ve never been one to complain
But right now I’m lost and I can’t find my way
My world’s come apart and it’s breakin’ my heart
But it helps to know Your heart is breakin’ too

When I cry, You cry
When I hurt, You hurt
When I’ve lost someone
It takes a piece of You, too
And when I fall on my face
You fill me with grace
‘Cause nothin’ breaks Your heart
Or tears You apart
Like when I cry

Alone in the dark, face in my hands, crying out to You
Lord, there’s never been a time in my life
There’s so much at stake, there’s so much to lose
But I trust it to You
You’ll bring me through
And it helps me to know that I’m not alone

When I cry, You cry
When I hurt, You hurt
When I’ve lost someone
It takes a piece of You, too
And when I fall on my face
You fill me with grace
‘Cause nothin’ breaks Your heart
Or tears You apart
Like when I cry

You’re the one who calmed the raging sea
You’re the one who made the blind to see
You looked through all of heaven and eternity
And through it all you saw me…

When I cry, You cry
When I hurt, You hurt
And when I’ve lost someone it takes a piece of You, too
When I fall on my face, You fill me with grace
Nothing breaks your heart, or tears you apart
Like when I cry

  4. Dear friend,
    Thank you for sending this to me today. It touched a place with me.

    The day of my father’s memorial service it was raining… in fact it had rained pretty much all day. My 11 year old daughter was saying to me, “Mom, you know when you see funerals in movies, alot of times it’s raining?” “Yes, Lydia.” “It was raining on the day of Dee’s funeral.”

    I said back to her, “Maybe God was crying, because He saw our sadness.”
    She liked that idea. I did too. This song just sorta gives me that picture.

    You have blessed me today.

    Hugs from Georgia!

  5. Leuk om eens een keer te reageren in engels.Ik ben verast te zien dat jouw website , de mogelijkheid geeft om het vertaald te lezen!
    Het is een van mijn wensen sinds ik de stap heb gezet om te”bloggen”,alleen wist ik niet hoe het op te zetten. Leuk je website te hebben ontdekt….Je uitgekozen lied en tekst is zo mooi en een grote bemoediging…..Jezus is door alles heengegaan,en heeft alles op zich genomen……..Hij begrijpt ons en helpt ons door ALLES heen.
