Song lyrics
Tears of the World (Michael Card)
In any split second of a moment of time
In the blink that is one single day
The sum of the sorrows that wrap round the world
Could catch every soul up, and sweep them away
As vast as the ocean, as deep as the sea
Swept up in one toxic tide
By warm, salty waves, the world weeps its woe
So how could it be that my own eyes are dry?

Chorus
So open my eyes, and open my heart
And grant me the gift of Your grieving
And awaken in me the compassion to weep
Just one, of the tears of the world

When God walked among us in the fullness of time
He wept tears as old as the world
Acquainted with sorrows, He took up the cup
And drank every drop of the poison that heals

Chorus
So open my eyes, and open my heart
And grant me the gift of Your grieving
And awaken in me the compassion to weep
Just one, of the tears of the world

And so comes the call of this sorrowful Man
To set our small sadness aside
To come now and follow, no matter the cost
To follow Him boldly
And 'weighting' in the time

Chorus
