Tears of Joy
Let my eyes fill with tears,
For tears help to cleanse the soul from hurt and pain.
Tears of joy flow like a river running down stream.
To laugh and then to cry some more.
Leave my tears alone.
When I was lost and confused,
Tears of joy came to me by way of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To shout and yet cry some more.
No more bound by sin and wickedness.
It’s my prerogative if I want to cry
Tears of joy.
My tears and I will release them as often as I please, because
They belong to me.
Not those of agony,
But those of joy and happiness.
Praising God comes through my tears of joy,
Healing through my tears of joy,
Deliverance through my tears of joy,
Thankful for my tears of joy.
