The Rain of God

Lord, you send the rain,
Giving water to the church,
To wash us and to cleanse us,
To quench our endless thirst

 

The rain that falls on us
Is often what we’re needing,
To refresh us and restore us,
A time of awesome blessing

 

For often we may feel
That we are in a drought,
In need of refreshing waters
When we are running out

 

For with the rain of God
Comes the growth that we need
And life springs forth from it
Just like a little seed

 

For if we don’t have rain,
How can our spirits grow
And flourish to produce
The crop that God has sowed?

 

So rain on us, dear God,
Draw us deep into your spring,
So our thirst can be satisfied
When we come and freely drink.

M.S. Lowndes
