Tears Lyrics

You’ve been waiting a long time
To let this out into the daylight
You’re not alone, we all have days
When the well inside needs to break

Just let ‘em fall like healing rain
Watch the walls start crumbling
Let your heart beat and feel the weight
You’ve carried disappear
Just let ‘em fall right down your face
Hit the ground in a pool of grace
And feel the things you haven’t felt for years
That’s why God made tears

The waves crash hard into the harbor
But you don’t have to hold ‘em back any longer
There’s a freedom found when you’re unafraid
To let water wash it all away

Just let ‘em fall like healing rain
Watch the walls start crumbling
Let your heart beat and feel the weight
You’ve carried disappear
Just let ‘em fall right down your face
Hit the ground in a pool of grace
And feel the things you haven’t felt for years
That’s why God made tears

Watch the old become new
Let the fear fade away
Feel his arms around you
It’s ok

Just let ‘em fall like healing rain
Watch the walls start crumbling
Let your heart beat and feel the weight
You’ve carried disappear
Just let ‘em fall right down your face
Hit the ground in a pool of grace
And feel the things you haven’t felt for years
That’s why God made tears

    I think the lyrics to this song are amazing and believe that people can be set free from many things if they allow God to bring them to the point of tears because tears are so healing. I know this to be true in my life!

    Hi, I am Michaela Mobley. Here is my story and how this song made an impact on my life. I have been hurting for a long time. When I was just 14 years old, my life fell apart. I was sexually abused by one of my closest friends. I was so afraid to tell anyone about it that I didn’t tell anyone except for my little sister who swore into secrecy that she wouldn’t tell anyone about it. The abuse lasted for 4 months and it got worse and worse until it happened every day that I saw this friend. He was a very close friend of mine so I was scared to ruin the friendship between us and our families if I spoke up about it. I was also very afraid of my abuser and afraid of what he would do if I let out the truth and asked for help. Finally I got up enough courage to tell my parents about it out of the grace of God and then soon this friend’s parents knew about it. The situation was taken care of and it was a difficult process to go through but we got through it. I was able to find God in the midst of all of this tragedy. I ran to God and fell at his feet. Night after night I began worshiping God for bringing me out of that dark time in my life. I was and to this day, am still very grateful that I was rescued out of that situation and brought to a safe harbor, to be in God’s arms safely forever. Its been 4 years since that extremely traumatic situation happened but that doesn’t by any means mean that I don’t think about what happened to me. I still have nightmares of what I went through and what I was forced to remember for the rest of my life. I can tell you all that it has not been easy for my heart to be at peace, even today, though I know that I am safe and free from my past. When I heard this song for the first time though, I cried. It felt good to get a long cry out. I cried because it made me think of how I am being healed now from my troubled past. I love this song because it lets me know that it is okay for me to cry about what happened to me, but it is also very important to remember how much hope there is for me that lies ahead of me and how loved by God I will always be. We no longer have to feel guilt nor shame for what happened to us; but we can rejoice, remembering that the Grace of God gives us a spirit to be courageous again, to get back up and live again, to soar when we were expected by the world to fall and break. We are created to live over and over again, through anything we may face. This song really inspires me and I hope it really inspires all who listen to it!! May God bless you all!! May The Lord of Heaven’s Armies bless all of you and keep you all in the palm of His hand!!
