Marshall Hall – When I Cry


This song was written by Marshall Hall and Benjamin Gaither for the album ‘Lovin Life’. It was sung by Marshall Hall himself along with Guy Penrod and Wes Hampton. This album was one of the three in which Marshall sang with the Gaither Vocal Band. Its a beautiful song which portrays how much God loves us that He feels more pain when we are in pain and gives us a sense of hope in Him.


Makin’ a list of all of the good things You’ve done for me
Lord, I’ve never been one to complain
But right now I’m lost and I can’t find my way
My world’s come apart and it’s breakin’ my heart
But it helps to know Your heart is breakin’ too

When I cry, You cry
When I hurt, You hurt
When I’ve lost someone
It takes a piece of You, too
And when I fall on my face
You fill me with grace
‘Cause nothin’ breaks Your heart
Or tears You apart
Like when I cry

Alone in the dark, face in my hands, crying out to You
Lord, there’s never been a time in my life
There’s so much at stake, there’s so much to lose
But I trust it to You
You’ll bring me through
And it helps me to know that I’m not alone

You’re the one who calmed the raging sea
You’re the one who made the blind to see
You looked through all of heaven and eternity
And through it all you saw me…
