1 Open the windows of heaven, O Lord,
And be a rich blessing outpoured;
Come with the plentiful show’rs of Thy grace,
Refreshing the dry, thirsty place.

2 Ref
Open the windows, we pray;
Send down a blessing today;
Open the windows of heaven, O Lord,
And be a rich blessing outpoured.

3 Help us to bring all the tithes unto Thee,
Our off’ring of love, glad and free;
Help us to render Thee service sincere,
To us let Thy mercy appear.

4 Open the windows of heaven, O Lord,
Unite us in loving accord;
Answer our pray’rs from Thy riches divine,
The kingdom and glory and Thine.
