10144. As The Dew From Heaven

1 As the dew from Heaven distilling,
Gently on the grass descends,
And revives it, thus fulfilling
What Thy providence intends;
Let thy doctrine, Lord! so gracious,
Thus descending from above,
Blest by Thee, prove efficacious
To fulfill Thy work of love.

2 Lord! Behold Thy congregation,
Precious promises fulfill,
From Thy holy habitation
Let the dew of life distill;
Let our cry come up before Thee,
Sweetest influence shed around;
So Thy people shall adore Thee,
And confess the joyful sound.
