After The Last Tear Falls

January 13, 2020—

At times, the present seems overwhelming and it’s difficult to remember God’s promises for the future. Andrew Peterson’s “After The Last Tear Falls” reminds us that someday, all that is wrong in the world will end, and we will see God and His plan.

We’ll see how the tears that have fallen

Were caught in the palms

Of the Giver of love

and the Lover of all

And we’ll look back on these tears as old tales

Today, let us remember that everything in this life is temporary, for we have been promised eternal life in the Lord—He who always guides and protects us.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

After the last tear falls
After the last secret's told
After the last bullet tears through flesh and bone
After the last child starves
And the last girl walks the boulevard
After the last year that's just too hard
There is love, love love love
There is love, love love love
There is love

After the last disgrace
After the last lie to save some face
After the last brutal jab from a poison tongue
After the last dirty politician
After the last meal down at the mission
After the last lonely night in prison
There is love, love love love
There is love

And in the end the end is oceans and oceans
Of love and love again
We'll see how the tears that have fallen
Were caught in the palms
Of the Giver of love
and the Lover of all
And we'll look back on these tears as old tales

'Cause after the last plan fails
After the last siren wails
After the last young husband sails off to join the war
After the last "This marriage is over"
After the last young girl's innocence is stolen
After the last years of silence that won't let a heart open
There is love, love love love
There is love

And in the end the end is oceans and oceans
Of love and love again
We'll see how the tears that have fallen
Were caught in the palms
Of the Giver of love
and the Lover of all
And we'll look back on these tears as old tales

'Cause after the last tear falls
(Love love love)
(Joy in the night, the King and the Kingdom)
Yes, after the last tear falls
(Love love love)
(Joy writes the song of innocence)
Only love
(Love love love)
(Joy in the night, the King and the Kingdom)
Only love
(Love love love)
(Joy writes the song of innocence, singing...)
After the last tear falls
