Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Tune of Hymn to Use

“Weeping will not save me!

Though my face were bathed in tears

That could not allay my fears

Could not wash the sins of years

Weeping will not save me

Refrain/Chorus

Jesus wept and died for me

Jesus suffered on the tree

Jesus waits to make me free

He alone can save me”

Weeping will not save me by Robert Lowry

The Composed Song

1. Sometimes back I was within

Deep within a great sorrow

And there’s no way of escape

And I don’t know what to do

That my way is disordered

Refrain/Chorus

Jesus wipes my tears away

Jesus has given me joy

He gives me surpassing joy

And his joy is my strength.


2. Sometimes back tear has even been

My very food day and night

When enemy continually say

That where even is my God

That there is no way of escape

Refrain/Chorus


3. Like a sword inside my bones

Is reproach enemy reproach’d me

When they say everyday that

Thine God that you are calling

Can he even save thee?

Refrain/Chorus

4. I even said ‘to my God

Why hast thou forgotten me?

Why do I go on mourning

For the o‘pression of enemy?

Hasten quickly and save me

Refrain/Chorus


5. I have even have the hope

In my Rock of Salvation

I even calleth his name

He answered me in a great gathering

And my God hath saved me

Refrain/Chorus


6. My sorrow turneth to joy

My cry turneth to laughter

When God hath heareth my voice

And he answered my prayers

My sorrow turneth to joy

Refrain/Chorus
