Representative Text

When God sees the flowers need His tender care,
He sends little raindrops with a blessing there.

Busy little raindrops let us be today,
As we strive to scatter blessings all along the way;
Helpful little raindrops will we be today,
Doing work for Jesus in a raindrop’s way.

2 We are little raindrops, God has sent us here
From His fount of blessing, bringing hope and cheer. [Refrain]

3 Every drop reflecting God’s most tender love
Helps to light the pathway to the Home above. [Refrain]

4 Though we are but raindrops, we are glad to know
That we have a mission in this world below. [Refrain]
