You who grieve from loss or affliction,
who suffer emotional pain or addiction,
be not discouraged or drown in your fears,
now you see Jesus through your veil of tears.
You eat from the bread of adversity,
and bowls full of tears for diversity;
raise up your cries so heaven can hear
and look upon God through your veil of tears.
This world is mired in pure suffering;
all through your life you take buffeting.
You can’t long escape or fight your way clear
but you can see clearly through your veil of tears.
Struggle through life as you grimace and groan,
But know in your heart that you’re not alone.
When troubles are many and often severe,
look on your Savior through your veil of tears.
