The Lord’s Tear Bottle

By Jen Hunt

Dear Child,
do not suppose the Lord’s tear bottle
cannot store those wept inside
or those there’d be had you any left to cry--
He marks every wail.
Just as his love is deep and wide,
so also is his vial.

Psalm 56:8 “You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?”
Revelations 7:17 “For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’”
