Weep Not for Me

From the Boundless Life collection

“Weep not, weep not for me*

Daughters of Israel’s womb;

Weep for yourselves”, said Christ

“Not for my cross or tomb”.


God weeps with all the poor,

God wears the prisoners’ chains;

God suffers in our wars,

God shares the people’s pains.


Each broken heart displays

God’s loving tear-drenched face.

Come weep and work with God, **

Come live God’s suff’ring grace.


* Luke 23:28 & 31
**Colossians 1:24
