527. Lord, I hear of show'rs of blessing

1 Lord, I hear of show'rs of blessing
Thou art scatt'ring, full and free, -
Show'rs, the thirsty land refreshing;
Let some drops descend on me,
Even me, even me;
Let some drops descend on me.

2 Pass me not, O gracious Father,
Sinful though my heart may be!
Thou might'st leave me, but the rather
Let thy mercy light on me,
Even me, even me;
Let thy mercy light on me.

3 Pass me not, O tender Saviour!
Let me love and cling to thee;
I am longing for thy favor;
When thou comest, call for me,
Even me, even me;
When thou comest, call for me.

4 Pass me not, O mighty Spirit!
Thou canst make the blind to see;
Witnesser of Jesus' merit,
Speak the word of pow'r to me,
Even me, even me;
Speak the word of pow'r to me.

Amen.
