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]
