When the Tears Fall

Usually when I hear a song or verse that speaks to me I pick out what did and then write about it. That's what lead to His Name... which has a fairly clear connection to Isaiah 9:6. Something my pastor said became the last verse of Rightful Place, everything else grew from that verse.
Last night, the last song we sang was one I had not heard before. It stood out to me in its entirety, fitting well with what I've been feeling of late. I don't have anything to add, so would rather just share the song with you. It is by Tim Hughes and I believe comes from his album When Silence Falls.

When the Tears Fall

I've had questions without answers
I've known sorrow, I have known pain
But there's one thing that I cling to
You are faithful, Jesus You're true

When hope is lost, I call You Saviour
When pain surrounds, I call You Healer
When silence falls,
You'll be the song within my heart

In the lone hour of my sorrow
Through the darkest night of my soul
You surround me, You sustain me
My defender for ever more

When hope is lost, I call You Saviour
When pain surrounds, I call You Healer
When silence falls,
You'll be the song within my heart

And I will praise You
I will Praise You
When the tears fall
Still I will sing to You
I will praise You
Jesus praise You
Through the suffering
Still I will sing to You

When hope is lost, I call You Saviour
When pain surrounds, I call You Healer
When silence falls,
You'll be the song within my heart

I will praise You
I will praise You
When the tears fall
Still I will sing to you
I will praise You
Jesus I will praise You
Through the suffering
Still I will sing to you

When the laughter fails to comfort
When my heart aches, Lord You'll be there
When confusion is all around me
And the darkness is my closest friend
Still I'll praise You
Jesus praise You
