Black With Tears

from by Aaron Strumpel



1. Your eyes black with tears
Are hills of rock and stone
Unflinching in the wind
Impenetrable to sun

Ch. He sings hope into misery, and joy into pain
With words of healing, sung like rain
He sings light into mud
And peace with his blood
With melodies of healing
Melodies he’s sung
To you…

2. Your face wrinkled up
Is sand in harsh sun
Confused in movement
And coming undone

3. Reminders of birth
Of your eyes first open
Of light’s first intrusion
The beginning of desire
