Through Tears

Through tears we laugh
Through tears we weep
Oh, language of heart’s deepest deep

Through tears we groan
Through tears we praise
Oh, language of Thought’s wordless ways

Through tears we hope
Through tears we trust
Oh, language of time’s mortal dust

Through tears we mourn
Or celebrate
Oh, language of human estate

Through tears we suffer
And rejoice
Oh, language of world-kindred voice

Through tears we love
Through tears we pray
Until God wipes our tears away

 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Rev. 21:4
