Jesus Wept Over Jerusalem

by Margaret Cagle

Jesus wept over Jerusalem
While on this earth below.
Something broke His heart,
And this made His tears flow.

What was on His dear heart
As He came to the city that day?
Why did he weep for them
As he rode upon His way?

Christ Jesus came to His own.
He came to die for them.
When He wept for Jerusalem,
He knew they'd reject Him.

Does Jesus also shed tears
As He looks on men today,
When they reject His plan
As salvation's only way?

Does it also break His heart
When we disobey His Word,
When we don't share the Gospel
With those who have not heard?
