The Promise Is: Weeping

Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak:
 O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed. 
My soul is also sore vexed: 
but thou, O LORD, how long
Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: 
oh save me for thy mercies' sake...
Mine eye is consumed because of grief; 
it waxeth old because of all mine enemies. 
Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; 
for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping. 
The LORD hath heard my supplication; 
the LORD will receive my prayer
Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: 
let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
Psalms 6:2-4 & 7-10

In the Word, we see that many who loved God greatest wept most. Even the Son of God did so. Yet, our merciful and compassionate Father draws so near He hears the silent tears as they fall. And He does more than listen: our Priest promises what the Enemy meant for evil He will turn to His glory and our good.

So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest;
 but he that said unto him, 
Thou art my Son, 
to day have I begotten thee...
Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications
 with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death,
 and was heard in that he feared; Though 
he were a Son, 
yet learned he obedience by the things which he 
suffered;
Hebrews 5:5 & 7-8

...And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. 
Revelation 7:17
