5936. Showers of Blessing

1. Here in Thy name we are gathered,
Come and revive us, O Lord;
There shall be showers of blessing,
Thou hast declared in Thy Word.

Oh, graciously hear us,
Graciously hear us, we pray:
Pour from Thy windows upon us
Showers of blessing today.

2. Oh! that the showers of blessing,
Now on our souls may descend,
While at the footstool of mercy
Pleading Thy promise we bend! [Refrain]

3. There shall be showers of blessing,
Promise that never can fail;
Thou wilt regard our petition;
Surely our faith will prevail. [Refrain]

4. Showers of blessing, we need them,
Showers of blessing from Thee;
Showers of blessing, oh, grant them,
Thine all the glory shall be. [Refrain]
