Tears On Earth Are Treasures In Heaven ~
I cry as humans do, I feel as my insides give away; the storms have collected in a multitude of and now the tears must finally fall.
Through my spiritual eyes I have entered Heaven.
Everything is white because of Him.
My savior, my LORD, my sweet sweet Jesus.
One tear falls as I kneel at His feet
then my hand He takes and lifts me to my feet.
Look here, "He says, then points to His right'.
A treasure box made of gold, shining so bright.
Do you remember each and every tear that you shed?
O no my Lord, I truly don't.
I do my child and I've saved every one;I caught them each time and placed them in this box to show you how much your tears mean to me.
Each one is a hurt for your hurts are mine too.
I placed them with care and held them for you.
You truly must know what you mean to me
for I died on Calvary to set you free.
The pain I withstood for I knew what for ~
The love that you would give me, I'll always want more
So, here are the tears you cried for me.
When no one was looking, indeed I was there.
I heard and saw and my heart felt your pain.
For my pain is yours and yours is mine.
With one touch of His hand, all the hurt was gone.
Nothing felt inside but the grace of God.
Inside and out my body was healed; for the tears that were shed
Were tears that He kept.
I am free, free, free of the pain.
No tears will I have, that will cause me pain.
Now when I close my eyes and see the box
I shall remember and treasure His every word
For the tears on earth are treasures in Heaven.
He will wipe away all tears from their eyes and there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor pain. All of that has gone forever.
Revelation 21:4 (The Living Bible)
All the glory to You my LORD ~
