After all these long-ass verses
I'm tired, you tired, Jesus wept
“Long-ass verses” refers to both the verses from the Holy Bible and his own rapping. Long verses are something he’s been doing a lot of lately— (“White Dress” and “New God Flow” just to name a couple).
This line is given near the very end of the album. After all the rapping (and self-reflection) he’s tired, she’s tired of hearing it, and so he ends the rap verse with what is the shortest Bible verse in many Bible translations (John 11:35), “Jesus wept.” In Yeezus, Kanye casts himself as the tragic figure of Jesus, who wept for the suffering of mankind — not the first time he’s made such a comparison.
The second-person address takes on added significance at the end of the Yeezus concert—after a three hour concert, you actually are tired. Kanye effectively includes the audience in his narrative with this declaration of collective fatigue.
