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 Hear us, O Saviour, while we pray,
Humbly our need confessing;
Grant us the promised show’rs today,
Send them up on us, O Lord.

Refrain:
Send show’rs of blessing;
Send show’rs refreshing;
Send us show’rs of blessing;
Send them, Lord, we pray.

2 Knowing Thy love, on Thee we call,
Boldly Thy throne addressing;
Pleading that show’rs of grace may fall,—
Send them upon us, O Lord. [Refrain]

3 Trusting Thy word that cannot fail,
Master, we claim Thy promise;
Oh that our faith may now prevail,—
Send us the showers, O Lord. [Refrain]
