Tears Bring Thoughts of Heaven

(published by Horace Waters, N.Y., 1863)

1.
Blame not those who weep and sigh
When to saddness given;
Kindly view the tearful eye--
Tears bring thougths of Heaven.
2.
3.
When in death our friends depart,
When are hopes are riven;
Tears brings comfort to the heart--
Tears bring thoughts of Heaven.
To the suffering child of earth
Unto madness driven,
Hallowed hours when tears have birth--
Tears bring thoughts of Heaven.
