Text

Let not the springs of holiness
    In me, O Lord! be dry;
Nor "let those things that yet remain,"
    Wither, and droop, and die.

CHORUS:
For rich and poor the rain comes down,
    The gift divinely free;
So is thy sovereign grace, O Lord!
    To souls that look to Thee.

As sweet refreshing show'rs of rain
    On parched ground do flow;
So let thy quick'ning love descend,
    To make my graces grow.

CHORUS
