Jesus wept

O Lord,
You weep over my city as well.
You see the evil that touches life.
Draw near; hold my hand as I enter
The valley of the shadow of death.

You know the salty tears of weeping.
You walked the soil of this earth.
You are my God in all circumstances.
Your tender shelter is there for me.

My heart seeks You for guidance.
Keep me from walking the way of sin.
In love for me You hung on the cross.
I weep tears of gratitude before You.

Because of Jesus, Amen.
