Hear us, O Saviour

In “Sometimes a Light Surprises” on September 28th, we saw that ‘tomorrow’ was not yet a single word. ‘Today’ was a hyphenated word at this time, as well.

Verse 1:
Hear us, O Saviour, while we pray,
Humbly our need confessing;
Grant us the promised show’rs to-day,
Send them upon us, O Lord.

Refrain:
Send show’rs of blessing;
Send show’rs refreshing;
Send us show’rs of blessing;
Send them, Lord, we pray.

Verse 2:
Knowing Thy love, on Thee we call,
Boldly Thy throne addressing;
Pleading that show’rs may fall,–
Send them upon us, O Lord.

Verse 3:
Trusting Thy word that cannot fail,
Master, we claim Thy promise;
Oh that our faith may now prevail,–
Send us the showers, O Lord.

Charles Bruce/Ira D. Sankey
