Little Jenny
Words & Music By G. L. S. West


Little Jenny scrubbed her hands across her eyes
Trying to wipe away the tears
She did not want to weep, she did not want to cry
For the loss of a loved one so dear
She wanted to be strong, to show everyone
That she could handle the pain
But her grandpa saw her eyes, he could see the hurt inside
And so he knelt to explain


"Don't ever try to hide your tears
Don't be afraid to weep
And when you feel the pain, let the tears flow
'Cause that's how the angels filled the sea"


As the years passed by, Jenny lived her life
She listened to her grandpa dear
He told her of God's love, how Christ came from above
He said, "You can have Him here."
He pointed to her heart, said, "God will never part
Unless you push Him away"
Jenny got on her knees, said, "God save me, please"
Then she heard her grandpa say


"Don't ever try to hide your tears
Don't be afraid to weep
And when you feel the love, let your feelings show
'Cause that's how the angels filled the sea"


Jenny loved the Lord and she obeyed His Word
She lived what she believed
But her grandpa passed away, year after she got saved
And, oh, how little Jenny grieved
Then at the grave that day, when people stood and prayed
And lay her grandpa to rest
Jenny stood and spoke those words her grandpa told
Words that withstood the test


"Don't ever try to hide your tears
Don't be afraid to weep
And when you feel the pain, let the tears flow
'Cause that's how the angels filled the sea

Don't ever try to hide your tears
Don't be afraid to weep
And when you feel the love, let your feelings show
"Cause that's how the angels filled the sea
