With lyrics that tug at your heart, all the sadness, grief, and emotions of this sacrificial season are captured in Schram's exquisite poetry, as "the eyes of heaven" look down in grief, witnessing the death of their beloved Son. "They wept for joy upon His humble birth. Now He suffers on the tree, and they cannot bear to see. Cover the earth with a cloud of darkness. Cover the earth with a blackened sky. Hide Calvary's pain 'neath a veil of tears that the eyes of heaven cry." A haunting oboe solo completes this poignant offering for Lent or Holy Week. This one is a must-do.
