1. Open the windows of Heaven,
Send showers of blessing just now;
Look on us, Lord, in Thy mercy,
While humbly before Thee we bow.

Showers of blessing,
Fresh showers of blessing we need;
Showers of blessing,
For showers of blessing we plead.

2. Open the windows of Heaven,
Look tenderly on us in love
Coming in heartfelt contrition,
We pray Thee our sins hence remove. [Refrain]

3. Trusting, we’ll try Thee, and prove Thee;
All effort without Thee is vain;
Earth’s greatest pleasures are fleeting,
Their loss is our infinite gain. [Refrain]

4. Open the windows of Heaven,
And bless us for Thy dear Son’s sake;
His blood shed for our redemption,
Our plea, only plea we now make. [Refrain]
