I find my eyes tearing up now
And I can’t find a reason why
Could I have found joy somehow
Or just another reason to cry

Can’t say I’m saddened by these abundant tears
Peace is found in knowing who I’m not
God, You have hold of my darkest fears
And You show me daily what I’ve got

Serenity holds an overwhelming monstrosity
But to deny my mind in this hour is gain
For I know Your always with me
Through the loneliest nights, through the pain

I pray to only be Yours always
And comfort is found in Your promise
“I will never leave you nor forsake you”
So my trust shall not go amiss

Lest I forbid my mind to wonder
These tears will never stop flowing
Which leaves me to ponder
Why cry these tears without knowing?
