Psalm 126:5-6
"They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him."


I don’t waste the tears you give to me
They are precious and valuable
My most expensive seeds
Purchased with the currencies
Of heartbreak and loneliness
Depression and defeat
But each one will be worth it
When it’s planted and bloomed
Just look in the garden and see
I’ve already begun the planting
I’ve watered your tears with mine
My voice has been their sunshine
Do you see these wonderful buds
Do you know what they’ll become
A perfect picture of me
Not all your tears have been sown
I’m still working the soil
I’m pulling out the weeds
I’m still buying more seed
But don’t lose heart my love
I’ve got wonderful plans for this garden
Perfectly lovely
Its joy beyond your dreams
Smell, taste, touch, and see
Experience my beauty
