wept quotes- 10 of
When Jesus wept, the falling tear
in mercy flowed beyond all bound;
Then David and the people who were with him raised their voices and wept, until they had no more strength to weep.
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, then we remembered Zion.
That girls are raped, that two boys knife a third,
Were axioms to him, who'd never heard
The Politician's corpse was laid away.
While all of his acquaintance sneered and slanged,
My mother groan'd! my father wept.
Into the dangerous world I leapt:
On a cloud I saw a child,
And he laughing said to me,
And we wept that one so lovely should have a life so brief;
I wept as I remembered how often you and I
Had tired the sun with talking and sent him down the sky.
