No Tears In Heaven Song Story and Lyrics - Rober S Arnold

Today I just wanted to share this song that I first heard some twenty five years or so ago. It is sung by Skeeter Davis.  

The composer of this song is Robert Sterling Arnold. Robert S Arnold was born in Coleman Texas in 1905. He passed away in 2003.

He was a member of several quartets during his lifetime and composed a number of songs.

The songs that he composed included, Did You Repent, Fully Repent?, Have You Thought, Really Thought?, If I Could But Just Take One Soul To Heaven, and I Wanta Get Right. No Tears in Heaven, written in 1935, is probably his best-known song.

It has however been a song that has comforted me and millions of Christians during times of trial. There is no better news than to know that there will be no tears in heaven.

The thought or idea that someday there will be no sorrow should be the best message ever shared. There is no greater enemy to man than death.

Death immediately forces us to consider if there is a purpose to life. Are we here as a result of evolution and only allocated 70 or so years before we depart the stage never to be heard of again or were we created?

These are questions that all are confronted with at some point in life.

If we are the result of evolution then there is no major purpose to life, to be honest.  We have no hope at all.

For Christians, the idea of the resurrection is what gives us hope and purpose on earth. 

I can identify with the apostle Paul when he says in I Corinthians 15 that, "For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: 17And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. 18Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. 19If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable"

It is the idea of the resurrection that gives us hope and real purpose in life!
Robert S Arnold

No Tears In Heaven Lyrics



1. No tears in heaven, no sorrows given.
All will be glory in that land;
There'll be no sadness, all will be gladness,
When we shall join that happy band.

CHORUS:

No tears (in heaven fair)
No tears, no tears up there,
Sorrow and pain will all have flown;
No tears (in heaven fair)
No tears, no tears up there;
No tears in heaven will be known.

2. Glory is waiting, waiting up yonder,
Where we shall spend an endless day;
Therewith our Savior, we'll be forever,
Where no more sorrow can dismay.

CHORUS:

3. Some morning yonder, we'll cease to ponder
O'er things this life has brought to view;
All will be clearer, loved ones be dearer
In heav'n where all will be made new.

CHORUS:

Below is a video of Skeeter Davis singing this beautiful hymn that gives hope to all of us on this earth.

When We Walk With The Lord Hymn (Trust And Obey) - History of hymn

When We Walk With The Lord History This hymn came about from an incident at one of Dwight L Moody's revival meetings in 1887. A young man who had just given his life to the Lord Jesus Christ was reportedly heard saying, 'I am not quite sure - I am going to trust and obey.' 
The music director of the Moody Bible Institute, Professor Towner, was present at the meeting when these words were uttered. Based on these words, Professor Towner with the help of John Sammis, who developed the lyrics, composed the music to this hymn Trust and Obey or When we walk with the Lord.
The words seem so simple but they express the feelings of many Christians. It is not easy to trust and obey but that is what we are all called to do if we are to be happy in Jesus.
This song has remained popular with many Christian singers to this day and it is my hope that you too will be blessed by this simple but powerful Christian song.

Will Your Anchor Hold?- Story Behind This Classic Hymn

Will Your Anchor Hold History The author of this hymn, "Will Your Anchor Hold", is Priscilla Owens. She was born in Baltimore, USA in 1829 of Scottish and Welsh blood. For over 50 years Priscilla Owens was actively involved in work for Christian youths and most of her songs were therefore composed for children. 
Besides this hymn she is also well known as the composer of another beloved Christian hymn, "We have heard a joyful sound". She also composed several other hymns during her fruitful life on earth.
"Will Your Anchor Hold" was sung outside the door of the dying hymn-writer Mary Fawler Maude (Thine For Ever! God of love). She sent her singers the message, "Tell them that it does not fail - it holds."
The hymn suggests that personal stability can only come from the right foundations. It employs a seafaring analogy in making its point. Will Your Anchor Hold Lyrics Below are the lyrics of this Christian hymn classic:-

Be Still For The Presence of The Lord Lyrics and Story Author: David J Evans

Story Behind "Be Still For The Presence of the Lord" For me and many Christians I believe, Be Still For The Presence Of The Lord, ranks high among worship hymns of all time. It is a beautiful song with a clear and simple message.
It is a call for us to tune out everything and focus on the Lord. The Holy One is here and nothing else matters.
It is one of the most beloved modern hymns that are full of the teachings of the scripture. It reminds me of the tradition long gone where hymns were used as vehicles for spreading the teachings of the church.
The author of this hymn is David J Evans who wrote this song in the 1980s.
The inspiration for this hymn is the story of Jacob fleeing from his brother. While in the wilderness he had a dream where he saw angels going up and down a ladder to heaven. The old Testament says, " ‘then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it.”

I have also read somewhere where it is said that this …
