"The Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces." Isaiah 25:8

Hymns Supplied Through the Gracious Generosity
of the Cyber Hymnal Website

Words: Meta Heusser-Schweizer, 1837 (Herz, du hast viel geweinet); translated from German to English by Jane Laurie Borthwick, Hymns from the Land of Luther, fourth series, 1862.

Music: "Vulpius," Melchior Vulpius, 1609


Long hast thou wept and sorrowed,
Poor mourner, dry thy tears;
Behold, with light and comfort,
The Lord Himself appears.

"Trust in My mercy ever,
My people!" saith the Lord.
Hold fast, in deepest sorrow,
That soul sustaining Word.

Then rest, sad heart, in patience,
With this petition still,
"Lord, all these vacant places
With Thine own fullness fill!"

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
