Rain of Living - Christian Poem
Thank you, Lord, for rain of living
Joyful steady drops you're giving
Drops that nourish, cleanse, refresh
Mercy upon land and flesh
Fresh us with your Spirit, too,
Wake down deep with thought of you
Thus you nurture spirit, soul
Body - by grace-rain made whole
Listen, heaven, and I will speak. Earth, hear the words from my mouth.
Let my teachings come down like raindrops. Let my words drip like dew, like gentle rain on grass, like showers on green plants.
I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Give our God the greatness he deserves!
--Deuteronomy 32:1-3, GOD'S WORD translation
