Who Will Wipe Our Tears?


Who is it Who will wipe our tears when we are torn with grief?
Who will bend to lift us when we fall?
Who will soften hearts in families and make them one again?
Who else but our dear Saviour and our Lord.

Who should we turn to first of all when troubles reach our door?
Whose mercy do we need when sin persists?
Whose strength will fight our strongest foe and give us victory?
Who else but Jesus Christ; none can resist.

Who is it that forgets our sins when He’s washed us in His Blood?
Who bottles all our tears and blanks out guilt?
Who takes us gently by the hand when we have slipped again?
Who never did regret the blood He spilt?

Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour built a bridge that He might save us
His Cross the bridge that spanned the gap from God
He died upon that cruel cross to pay the price that our sin cost
Surrender now to Him on the road He trod.

Wyn Barratt Nov 2012.
