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 Each blessing from God cometh down like the rain,
Dropping, dropping, dropping down;
Some token of love every day we’ll obtain,
Continually dropping down.

He sendeth the showers, refreshing and sweet,
Dropping, dropping, dropping down;
With goodness and mercy our days are replete,
Continually dropping down.

2 The unceasing patter makes earth loudly ring,
Dropping, dropping, dropping down;
Till even the deserts with joy shout and sing,
Continually dropping down. [Refrain]

3 Like silvery drops from the clouds far above,
Dropping, dropping, dropping down;
So comes our kind Father’s sweet blessing of love,
Continually dropping down. [Refrain]
