Do Not Cry For Me

When my day of persecution comes No tears are to be shed for me Standing before this spiritual battle I have prepared on fallen knees When the right to my bible is denied And my faith picked and ripped apart Not one tear to fall from your cheek God's word is stored safely in my heart When I am threatened to stand in silence God's word I am not permitted to utter Any tears forming in your eyes, hold back Strength I have received from my Father As I declare loudly before a lost world Jesus is Lord and every knee will bow Hold back any signs of sorrow, in your eyes For I promise this is not the end, not now When in shackles I am bound Beaten and drug onto the street Wipe any tear from your eye Victory is mine, for I know not defeat As I am delivered up before the rulers My mind will not ponder on what to say Let not the salt of a tear touch your mouth For God has prepared my words this day This evil world, will try and rob my soul I stand prepared, I long to see my Savior's face Weep not in fear, for I will stand secure Covered in the blood and God's amazing grace Whether I am called away or put to death As the church battles in continuous debate Weep not for me, my race is run I have entered inside the eastern gate If only you could see what is in front of me Suffering compares not to what my eyes behold Rejoice, sadness will never enter in As tears will never stain Heaven's streets of gold I am home at last, secure in the arms of Jesus His paradise is where I have so longed to be I am happy, free, at peace and alive Please, do not cry for me - Donetta Harless July 9, 2016
