Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 As showers from the clouds come down
Upon the thirsty ground,
So shall refreshing show’rs of grace
Be poured in plenty round.

Send show’rs of blessing,
Send showers of blessing;
O Lord, from above,
In thy wonderful love,
Send showers of blessing.

2 The Word of God assures our hearts,
We cannot plead in vain;
The Lord shall brighten all the clouds
And send the needed rain. [Refrain]

3 Of old, at Pentecost, the show’rs
Descended from above,
And many were the hearts refreshed
With healing streams of love. [Refrain]

4 When we are ready to receive,
Then is God’s time at hand
When he will give refreshing show’rs
And bless the weary land. [Refrain]
