"All My Tears" as written by and Julie Miller....
When I go, don't cry for me
In my Father's arms, I'll be
And wounds this world left on my soul
Will all be healed and I'll be whole

Sun and moon will be replaced
With the light of Jesus' face
And I will be not be ashamed
For my Savior knows my name

It don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears, be washed away

Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches lie
Come and eat from Heaven's store
Come and drink and thirst no more

'Cause it don't matter where you bury me
I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears, be washed away

So weep not from me, my friends
When my time below does end
For my life belongs to Him
Who will raise the dead again

It don't matter where you bury me
'Cause I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay
All my tears, be washed away

It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter

    General Comment"This song was written by Mark Byrd and Julie Miller. More of a modern day hymn, all the aspects of this song were written about such a chronic pain in their life. We were really scared to cover this because we wanted to really honor what this song was. Julie’s husband, Buddy Miller came in the studio and we sat him down and we played it to him and he loved it, which calmed our fears a bit." - Dan Haseltine (Jars Of Clay)

    General CommentI can;t say i've ever seen a song completely like this before...it's an awesome concept and i'm really glad Jars Of Clay decided to include it in one of their songs.

    General CommentIn addition to the original version by Julie Miller, this song was covered in 1995 by Emmylou Harris, which probably remains the best-known recording of the song.

    General CommentI heard the Plumb cover first; I didn't know Jars of Clay covered it, too. I'll have to find their version.
