The Day God Cried

God looked down upon His Son
So righteous in His eyes
He lived His life free from sin
He never stole, He never lied

God looked down upon His Son
How His heart did ache
As in pain Jesus carried the cross
To pay for our mistakes

God looked down upon His Son
As they spit on His Holy face
He watched as they mocked Him
Walked Him in the streets in disgrace

God looked down upon His Son
As they nailed Him to the cross that day
God looked down upon His Son
Wanted to take all His pain away

God looked down upon His Son
With Love, dignity and pride
All the angels gathered round Him
That's the day that God cried

God looked down upon His Son
Saw the agony He bore
He wanted to put His arms around Him
Not let Him suffer anymore

God looked down upon His Son
As Jesus's blood spilled crimson red
Agony from a crown of thorns
They'd placed upon HIs head

God looked down upon HIs Son
As He suffered and He died
The angels gathered all around Him
On the day that God cried

� Linda Hill


From The Author:

I am deeply honored to be chosen in the top 10 for my hymn, The Day God Cried. This hymn came to me as I wondered how God felt watching His precious Son die on the cross. I had never heard a hymn explaining the agony God must have felt when He watched the pain on Jesus' face as He died on the cross for our sins.

This hymn only scratches the surface of what God must have felt on that day. In His heart I'm sure He wanted to send His angels down and gather up His Son to Him, to take away Jesus' pain, but He knew that was not to be. God, in His infinite glory gave the gift of love to a lost world...His only Son.

God bless all who read my hymn and I pray it moves your heart and you will understand The Day God Cried.
