Mingled Tears

by Hazel June Horsechief Marshall

Lord,
When I am in despair,
Let my tears mingle with yours.

When no one seems to care,
Let my tears mingle with yours.

When my spirit is hurting so,
Let my tears mingle with yours.

When my prayers are weak and low,
Let my tears mingle with yours.

Day after day, I try so hard,
Let my tears mingle with yours.

My heart aches for your touch,
Let my tears mingle with yours.

Lord, where are you? I ask.
Let my tears mingle with yours.

A voice I hear says, "I'm here.
Let my tears mingle with yours."


Where, Lord, I cannot see?
Let my tears mingle with yours.

His voice says, "I'm here.
Your tears are my tears.


The love you feel is real,
Your tears are my tears."


His voice says, "I'm here.
Your tears are my tears.


I hear every word of your heart,
Your tears are my tears.


I am always there for your every need,
Your tears are my tears.


Your pain is my pain,
Your tears are my tears.


I love you, Child, oh, so much!
My tears are mingled with yours!"
