ON MY WAY

BOTTLE OF MY TEARS


I want to see the bottle Lord
You fill with all my tears
See how much you collected
Down through all the years

I am sure it’s very large
This bottle that you’ve got
For all the days I’ve lived
I seemed to have cried a lot

Have cried in fear and pain
In childhood long ago
Cried with all the memories
That still haunt and hurt me so

I have cried a lot
For myself and others too
All my tears ever shed
Are collected up by you

Have cried for love that’s lost
Cried with a broken heart
Cried with bitter sorrow
When death bids life depart

Keep the cork off its neck
For it is as my heart fears
That I am crying again
Filling the bottle of my tears

ANOTHER HILL


There’s another hill Lord
In front of my way
It has to be climbed
At its foot I cant stay
For I have to travel on
Although its sides are so steep
I’ve climbed hills so often
My soul it could weep

Chorus
It’s another hill Lord
Steeper than the last
Please help me climb it
For there is no way past
I’m weary so weary Lord
My strength it has gone
Help me once again
Just to carry on

I remember a hill  
You climbed long ago
Called Mount Calvary
Where your blood it did flow
You were so weary Lord
Yet you climbed it for me
Died for me on a cross
My soul to set free

Chorus
It’s another hill Lord
Steeper than the last
Please help me climb it
For there is no way past
I’m weary so weary Lord
My strength it has gone
Help me once again
Just to carry on

My sins made you climb it
On that dreadful day
So I trust you Lord
To help show me the way
By dying on that hill Lord
Helps me so much to see
When hills come in my way
You’ll climb them with me

 Chorus
It’s another hill Lord
Steeper than the last
Please help me climb it
For there is no way past
I’m weary so weary Lord
My strength it has gone
Help me once again
Just to carry on
