When I Cry

I've actually had some trouble with this song.  The girls found it and liked it, but it kind of annoyed me...almost made me angry when I would hear it.  I can't really explain why.  But it's growing on me and, to some extent, beginning to bring comfort.  I know He cares about my pain.  I'm beginning to understand that immense grief doesn't diminish my faith.  My not understanding doesn't take away anything from His goodness.

I think about when Jesus wept over Lazarus.  He knew the outcome, but He sorrowed for those sorrowing.  Even though William is with Him, I believe He is sorrowing over my sorrow.


Lyrics:
Makin' a list of all of the good things You've done for me
Lord, I've never been one to complain
But right now I'm lost and I can't find my way
My world's come apart and it's breakin' my heart
But it helps to know Your heart is breakin' too

When I cry, You cry
When I hurt, You hurt
When I've lost someone
It takes a piece of You, too
And when I fall on my face
You fill me with grace
'Cause nothin' breaks Your heart
Or tears You apart
Like when I cry

Alone in the dark, face in my hands, crying out to You
Lord, there's never been a time in my life
There's so much at stake, there's so much to lose
But I trust it to You
You'll bring me through
And it helps me to know that I'm not alone

When I cry, You cry
When I hurt, You hurt
When I've lost someone
It takes a piece of You, too
And when I fall on my face
You fill me with grace
'Cause nothin' breaks Your heart
Or tears You apart
Like when I cry

You're the one who calmed the raging sea
You're the one who made the blind to see
You looked through all of heaven and eternity
And through it all you saw me...

When I cry, You cry
When I hurt, You hurt
And when I've lost someone it takes a piece of You, too
When I fall on my face, You fill me with grace
Nothing breaks your heart, or tears you apart
Like when I cry
