Jesus Wept

Jesus wept

and so can we

Dry eyes don’t make us

braver or stronger

than our Lord


Jesus wept over death

even though he was about to restore life

and had both faith and sight

He still wept

even knowing the glories of Heaven

which overshadow earth’s pain


Jesus wept because death

isn’t how it was meant to be

Soul torn from body

Friend from friend

Flesh from flesh

Humanity from earth


Jesus wept

beside a tomb

over a city

in a garden

and on a cross


This man of sorrows

acquainted with grief

knows your tears

and collects every one

Not to shame you

but to heal you

and restore you to life

beyond the grave
