All My Tears by Jars of Clay

October 8, 2008 1 comment

I was playing around with the new beta of music player/streamer from Spotify when I came across a song from Jars of Clay called “All My Tears“.I think the song was originally written by Julie Miller. I love the lyrics and especially the part about how “Gold and silver blind the eye, Temporary riches lie” words particular relevant given the recent financial market crisis.

You can listen to the track on LastFM or Spotify (if you have an account).

Here are the lyrics:

When I go, don’t cry for me
In my Father’s arms I’ll be
The wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed and I’ll be whole.
Sun and moon will be replaced
With the light of Jesus’ face
And I will not be ashamed
For my Savior knows my name.

It don’t matter where you bury me,
I’ll be home and I’ll be free.
It don’t matter where I lay,
All my tears be washed away.

Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches lie
Come and eat from heaven’s store,
Come and drink, and thirst no more

It don’t matter where you bury me
I’ll be home and I’ll be free
It don’t matter where I lay
All my tears be washed away

So, weep not for me my friends,
When my time below does end
For my life belongs to Him
Who will raise the dead again.

It don’t matter where you bury me,
I’ll be home and I’ll be free.
It don’t matter where I lay,
All my tears be washed away.

Should I stay in England or go back to South Africa?

A question that is often asked by many South Africans. The church I go to is holding an event to give some guidance on the question.

An event for South Africans to think Biblically about whether to return to SA or stay in the UK

Guests are welcome – both South African and non-South African, Christian and non-Christian. (The event though is geared to South African Christians)

There is an event posted on facebook. Please let the organiser know if you are coming along.
