God Shall Wipe All Tears Away

Representative Text

1 God's word is full of promises
To weary souls of rest and peace;
But oh, most sweet of all today,
That God shall wipe all tears away.

Chorus:
All tears away, all tears away,
For God shall wipe all tears away;
All tears away, all tears away,
For God shall wipe all tears away.

2 Here we may bear a heavy cross,
Our hearts grow sore with pain and loss;
But there in God's eternal day,
His hand shall wipe all tears away. [Chorus]

3 Oh, burdened heart, be brave to bear
Thy cross awhile--the crown is there!
Thy hand within the Father's lay,
Until he wipes all tears away. [Chorus]
