I Made My Lord Cry

by Charles M Harrison

I made my Lord cry today,
I made him shed a tear.
All because I listened
but I chose not to hear.
I knew that I was doing wrong
yet I did it anyway.
I know that I hurt my Lord,
as I know the sun rises each day.
Inside something was different
I did not feel the same way.
What used to bring me pleasure
brought only sorrow today.
Then I knew what I had done
my heart began to break.
I began to shed my own tears
for my Lords sake.
My Lord, through his sorrow
forgave me of my sin.
I began to cry anew
for the pain I caused him.
Like fresh rain that falls
the tears washed the pain away.
I thanked my Lord for his love,
I thanked him again today.

I was not logged in when I read this the first time. It took me a while to find it again but it is worth it. Thanks for posting it Charles.
