A song of sadness was heard across the land,
Tears fell in torrents like April’s rain,
Questioning hearts cried out to God— or hid,
Refusing emotion again.
A song of honesty was heard across the land,
Show me my weakness, show me my part,
What could I have done differently
To spare someone’s breaking heart?
A song of surrender was heard across the land,
Lord, we are all frail and weak,
You alone know each person’s heart;
It’s You, not just comfort we must seek.
A song of caring was heard across the land,
I’m determined to reach out to others,
Give me wisdom and discernment;
As Jesus’ love I discover.
A song of thankfulness was heard across the land,
God’s Holy Spirit points us to Him;
We pray, then rest peacefully,
Confident though our vision is dim.
A song of praise was heard across the land,
There’s coming an end to sadness,
Trust God, obey Him fully,
He fills our hearts with gladness.
