There’s a Legend of a Teardrop
There’s a legend of a teardrop that rolled
down a cheek one day, and it fell upon a
tombstone where a family had gone to
pray. And it sparkled like a diamond as it
ventured toward the sod, and its
brilliance was so startling that it caught
the eye of God.
That teardrop, born of sorrow for a mother
who had died, was shed in grief and
sadness by her children who had cried.
But it had a special meaning to the
Father up above, for that teardrop was
just loaded with all her children’s love.
In its loving sparkling brilliance God
recalled the teardrop home, and he
showed the mother, who no more on
earth would roam.
Then God took that brilliant teardrop
shed in love on earth afar, and he placed
it in the heavens with His brightest
So when you look into the heavens
where ten million stars are spread, you
may see a lovely teardrop that in sorrow
you have shed.
