When the Tears Fall

by Tim Hughes
 
I’ve had questions, without answers
I’ve known sorrow, i have known pain
but theres one thing, that i’ll cling to
you are faithful, Jesus your true

when hope is lost, i’ll call you saviour
when pain surrounds, i’ll call you healer
when silence falls, you’ll be the song within my heart

in the lone hour, of my sorrow
through the darkest night of my soul
you surround me, and sustain me
my defender, forever more

when hope is lost, i’ll call you saviour
when pain surrounds, i’ll call you healer
when silence falls, you’ll be the song within my heart

I will praise you, i will praise you
when the tears fall, still i will sing to you
i will praise you, Jesus praise you
Through the suffereing still i will sing

when hope is lost, i’ll call you saviour
when pain surrounds, i’ll call you healer
when silence falls, you’ll be the song within my heart

I’ve had questions, without answers
I’ve known sorrow, i have known pain
but theres one thing, that i’ll cling to
you are faithful, Jesus your true

when hope is lost, i’ll call you saviour
when pain surrounds, i’ll call you healer
when silence falls, you’ll be the song within my heart

I will praise you, i will praise you
when the tears fall, still i will sing to you
i will praise you, Jesus praise you
Through the suffereing still i will sing 

when hope is lost, i’ll call you saviour
when pain surrounds, i’ll call you healer
when silence falls, you’ll be the song within my heart

  1. Thank you for the words to both of these songs today. I sure needed to read them and pray them back to God. My heart grieves for my 19 year old son and the life he has chosen to live apart from God. He is making such destructive choices that will have long lasting consequences. It is so hard to watch it happen and be so powerless to stop it. I have the same clutching in my heart and stomach like when he was little and about to do something dangerous to himself out of little boy curiosity. Back then, I could grab hold of him and scoop him out of the danger. Can’t do that anymore. It hurts.
    But God…He is my hope. He is the song in my heart. Blessed be the name of the Lord. He gives and takes away. He is the One in sovereign control over my son…I am not. The tears do fall from my eyes. The Lord is there to wipe them, though.
    I needed these reminders!

  2. You are very welcome Lisa! I know what you mean about your son… God did not promise that we would not experience sorrow. It is an important part of our spiritual maturity. I hurt for you and your son. I pray that God will awaken him and draw him to Himself as He gives you comfort and joy.

    In Christ
