Brian Lothery - When the Blood Covers Your Tears

from When the Blood Covers Your Tears by Craig Marvin Johnson



Brian shared his poignant testimony about how during a worship service a tear fell into his communion cup. He then shared that God spoke to him about the Blood covering his tears.

Over the course of the next few months God gave the seed of this song and eventually the full lyrics. I hope it means as much to you as it does to me.


When the Blood Covers Your Tears
Brian Lothery

Standing in the church, communion cup in hand
Partaking in the sacrifice of God’s Lamb
The Spirit of the Lord breathes upon us all
Weeping in my worship, my tears begin to fall

Falling into my cup I see a solitary tear
My thoughts, “Lord, I’ve ruined it”
Then it quickly disappears…

When the blood covers your tears it can wash the pain away
If we let Him, He will guide us to a brand new day
{Then} We can face our horizons no longer bound by fear
When we allow the Blood of Jesus to wash away our tears
When we allow the Blood of Jesus to wash away our tears

[Looking at my life]{Standing in my life}, the pieces at my feet
I had strayed so far from God’s mercy seat
The Spirit breathes upon me. I hear the {Father’s}[Father] call
Weeping in repentance my tears [begin to] fall

My whole world has been shaken. How can I face my fears?
The Father whispers “Child.
My Blood has covered up your tears.”
