Tears Will Never Stain the Streets of That City

Tears Will Never Stain The Streets Of That City

Words and Music by Dottie Rambo

If I could count all the tears that have fallen
They would seem like an ocean to me
And if my heart were a window
That you could look through
All the pain and scars you would see

But tears will never stain the streets of that city
No wreaths of death on my mansion door
Teardrops aren’t welcome beyond the gates of glory
‘Cause the heart will never break anymore

Well I’ve never met one man without sorrow
Never looked into eyes with no pain
But there’s a land where grief is a stranger
And songs of joy are the only songs they sing

But tears will never stain the streets of that city
No wreaths of death on my mansion door
Teardrops aren’t welcome beyond the gates of glory
‘Cause the heart will never break anymore

I have questioned the loss of a loved one
The grave seems so final and cold
But we’ll meet again where death has no victory
In a land where we’ll never grow old

But tears will never stain the streets of that city
No wreaths of death on my mansion door
Teardrops aren’t welcome beyond the gates of glory
‘Cause the heart will never break anymore

‘Cause the heart will never break anymore
