He Gathers Every Teardrop
By Glenda Fulton Davis

Regardless of the circumstance,
Regardless of the fear,
Regardless of the pain we bear,
Regardless of the tear,
Our God is ever in control,
Performing as He should,
And He has promised in His Word
to work all things for good.

But as a loving father would,
He sometimes lets us cry
To cleanse the hurt out of our heart,
To wash it from our eye.
Yet gently gathers He the tears
Within His Hands to stay
Until He turns them into pearls
and gives them back someday.
