Trail of Tears

Eve did Adam wipe your tears or were they the first to fall onto earth’s ground trailblazing the trail of tears

Hagar your tears poured out for life and Ishmael’s race continues to grow

At the roadside, many tears fell for Rachel – flower bouquets bare witness

Hezekiah cried painful tears and 15 more years of glory were added

Jeremiah’s bitter tears echo through time – lamentations drip and drench blood lands

Mary did you know that your tears would fall on Skull Mountain then pour out again by Fire

Surrounded by a cloud of witnesses
A trail of tears poured out by each of them
Now by each of us

Pressed and crushed towards the goal
Tears of the fittest paving the trail to Everlasting Glory
