Father Don't Cry

Here's a pre-Shabbat treat: the ever-fantastic Avraham Fried singing one of my favorites - I'm sure you'll love this melody as much as I do. In case you'd like to sing along with the vid, the lyrics appear below. Enjoy, and let's hope that Hashem wipes away all tears of pain, and only tears of love and joy remain - amen and Shabbat Shalom!

Father Don't Cry, Composition and Lyrics by Avraham Fried

I will never forget the night I saw my father cry
I was frightened and alone and his tears were burning in my eyes
Deep in my soul I held him tight and tried to ease the pain.

Father in heaven it's no secret at all
When You think of Your children
How far they are from home
Two tender tears fall from Your eyes
And Your cries shake the world
I cannot bear to see You this way.

Father don't cry
I love You too much to see You in pain
And and only You Who created tears
Can wipe them away forever
So bring on the day when there'll be only joy
You and I will smile
Bring on the day when there'll be be no more tears
We'll never cry again.

I know it's tears of love
But still it hurts me just the same
You have always held my hand
And now I want to hold Yours too
And be there for You
Don't You agree it's time to send the tears away

Father in heaven there's no reason at all
Your precious children still are so far from home
We've done all we can now it's in Your hands
Let it end, oh, let it end,
The whole world is waiting for You.

Father don't cry
I love You too much to see You in pain
And and only You who created tears
Can wipe them away forever
So bring on the day when there'll be only joy
You and I will smile
Bring on the day when there'll be be no more tears
We'll never cry again.
