As He approached Jerusalem and saw the city,
He wept over it and said, "If you, even you,
had only known on this day what would bring you peace
—but now it is hidden from your eyes."
"My eyes fail from weeping,
I am in torment within,
my heart is poured out on the ground
because my people are destroyed."
"I know how hard it is to see destruction coming.
I know you wish you didn't have to watch as it approaches.
I know you wish it would pass quickly and be over with.
"As you share in My sorrow,
so also you shall share in My comfort.
I am the Lamb of God given to the world.
I carried every sorrow and grief,
and I passed through death to resurrection!
"I am the Redeemer of all things.
I am He who wipes every tear and makes all things new.
I am the Restorer of all things
and the Creator of the new creation.
"Rest in My arms and let Me hold you through the night."
Art: "In the Arms of the Restorer"
