But I didn't think there was a future tense in Hebrew?

It would appear to be true. Everything I have found says the word only appears in the hiph`il, the waw is clearly conjunctive (not consecutive) and the -aH at the end suggests cohortative. It appears to mean "I will wail/mourn," so your original rendering "and I will cry" seems reasonable.

I'm told it's Neither. It is a first person singular future cohort + conjunctive vav. The root is י-ל-ל in the Hif'il Binyan.
