Tears have a voice(Thomas Brooks, "The Crown and Glory of Christianity, or, HOLINESS, the Only Way to Happiness", 1662)"The Lord has heard the voice of my weeping." Psalm 6:8Tears have a voice. God has an eye as well upona man's tearsas upon his prayers. Penitent tearsare divine ambassadors, which never return fromthe throne of grace without answers of grace. Petersaid nothing, but went out and wept bitterlyandobtained mercy. Tears are a kind of silent prayers,which will at last prevail for mercy."I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears." Isaiah 38:5A sinner's face never shines so beautiful, aswhen it is bedewed with penitential tears.
