[b]Tears have a voice[/b](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 upon a man's tears--as upon his prayers. Penitent tears are divine ambassadors, which never return from the throne of grace without answers of grace. Peter said nothing, but went out and wept bitterly--and obtained 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, as when it is bedewed with penitential tears.
