The Cry of the Heart

Author requests article critique
There is a crying with and a crying without the voice.
More than once I have noticed a psalmist in the Bible speak of crying out or calling out with the voice. It seemed redundant because how else could one cry out but with the voice? I thought it was just repetitive custom in Hebrew literature, and maybe it is in part. But there is something more there. Many times the cry of the heart never reaches the lips, it is a silent cry. But in Psalm 3 for example the psalmist makes sure that the cry takes on words. Often we speak our minds but not our hearts. One's ear can be opened and attuned to hear the cry of peoples' hearts. Indeed we often may be ignorant or oblivious of the cry of our own hearts, and need to be brought in touch with it. The Lord tends to answer the cries of peoples hearts. It is often very different from what we say out loud with our lips.
"I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. Selah." (Psalm 3, v.40)
