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]
