ONE DAY (Song Lyrics … Chorus to be Sung Slowly)

tears dropping an instant picture
Once my heart was open so wide
Then life happened, closing its door
Sadness masqueraded as joy
No entrance; but tears welled inside

And life kept happening daily
But didn’t want to include me
I had my own journey charted
Sadly not lined with lovingly

Chorus
And one day
The jar of pain’s tears
Will be empty
And all of life’s fears
Will have left me
One day

Tears kept battling for their own space
As my heart relentlessly cried
One thing after another thing
Tried to line my broken path, my face

Surprisingly my heart stood firm
I knew I was being led forth
In my weakness and through the tears
His strength, His peace these did affirm

Chorus
And one day
The jar of pain’s tears
Will be empty
And all of life’s fears
Will have left me
One day

So for now ’till joy manifests
I’ll hold tight to all that I know
Knowing I’m so loved and so blessed
And knowing my heart His arrests

And I know that day will be soon
In that day, the sweetest of days
My heart oh! my heart will be found
Found singing Eternal Love’s tune

Chorus
And one day
The jar of pain’s tears
Will be empty
And all of life’s fears
Will have left me
One day

  1. How beautiful! “One day” is a sad song, but it is also a song of hope for those who wait for Christ. Unfortunately, there are countless people who suffer the same way but have no hope.

    1. Kathleen, over the last two years of blogging I have met some truly beautiful people who have hung in there with me, encouraged and loved me with prayers lifted. You are one of them and I thank the Lord for the gift of your friendship.
