AND THE TEARS FELL
“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.”
John 19:30 KJV
I believe as the blood ran down our precious Saviour’s body as He hung there on the cross dying for you and for me, that tears ran down His face and also in His heart. Not only was He in pain from the beatings and the nails, His heart was broken because He had been betrayed, rejected and ridiculed.
Marvin P. Dalton wrote the beautiful heart touching hymn “Oh What A Savior”. It is my personal opinion that this hymn should be sung at every church service. “O what a Savior, O hallelujah! His heart was broken on
Calvary, His hands were nail scarred, His side was riven,
He gave His life-blood for even me.”
I believe as the blood ran down His body from the nails that had been pounded into Him, that tears of hurt also ran down His heart because He had been rejected, ridiculed and betrayed. Not only was His body broken on
Calvary, His heart
was also broken. What a compassionate
and loving Saviour we have.
