Tears Come Too Late

Tears come too late
When the weeping is done
The aftermath has already come

But where were your tears
When Mercy called?
When Grace tugged?
When Conscience shrugged?

Every step the Father called
Did I hear, was I bothered?
I shut my ears, my heart hardened
So now I stand alone
With my price to pay
Heavy as it is, my debt, this burden

Tears come too late
When the weeping is done
The aftermath has already come

And yet these tears
Can water something new
In God there is Life
In tears we can yet reap in joy

Tears come too late
But when the weeping is done
God’s Redemption Work has already begun

I had written this after a day of crying… My heart had been left broken, and I have no one to blame but myself. Our actions do bring consequences – even though we may not think so at the time. But yet, Father God’s words challenge me: “I can still raise the dead!” With God, there is always hope and redemption – even when things seem already ‘dead’.
