Jesus Wept

Jesus Wept

Each tear screams, "Do not be afraid,
O ye of little faith," wondering when
Believing will be made of more than words;
Wondering when faith will permeate
Every moment, even the slow thin ones,
When all senses point to doubt;
Wondering when the limitations
Experience imposes will fade
In the light of the full reality:
Believing in and receiving of life everlasting,
But alas, so much needless pain I've seen
In the tears on the faces of this world
As I walk among you, weeping.
~ Rev. Peter T. Atkinson
