Monday Musings

Hello!

I took a break for a couple of weeks and am back, bringing you a Monday morning special. The Alliance of Baptists is a group of people, churches and ministry partners passionate about social justice, ecumenism and life together. At their recent event, Alan H. Green (actor and singer with a long repertoire on Broadway and Law & Order, or course) sang this gorgeous song written by Andrew Osenga and Andrew Peterson. It was written ten or so years ago, but this song really fits 2020. I think we might need to hear it today. “After the Last Tear Falls” is hope-filled and full of lyrics to ponder. Please take a listen and let me know what you think! Happy Monday, Beloved child of God. ~Laurel

After the Last Tear Falls – click for video

Lyrics:

After the last tear falls, after the last secret’s told
After the last bullet tears through flesh and bone
After the last child starves and the last girl walks the boulevard
After the last year that’s just too hardThere is love
Love, love, love
There is love
Love, love, love
There is loveAfter the last disgrace, after the last lie to save some face
After the last brutal jab from a poison tongue
After the last dirty politician, after the last meal down at the mission
After the last lonely night in prisonThere is love
Love, love, love

After the last tear falls there is love... And in the end, the end is  oceans and oceans of love and love again We… | Ocean quotes, Special words,  Praise and worship


There is love
Love, love, love
There is loveAnd in the end, the end is oceans and oceans of love and love again
We’ll see how the tears that have fallen
Were caught in the palms of the Giver of love and the Lover of all
And we’ll look back on these tears as old tales’Cause after the last plan fails, after the last siren wails
After the last young husband sails off to join the war
After the last, this marriage is over
After the last young girl’s innocence is stolen
After the last years of silence that won’t let a heart openThere is love
Love, love, love
There is loveAnd in the end, the end is oceans and oceans of love and love again
We’ll see how the tears that have fallen
Were caught in the palms of the Giver of love and the Lover of all
And we’ll look back on these tears as old tales

‘Cause after the last tear falls there is love
