MAKE MELODY IN YOUR HEART TO THE LORD
564 Lord I hear of shower of blessing
There shall be showers of blessing
Lord, I hear of showers of blessing,
Thou art scattering full and free;
Showers the thirsty land refreshing;
Let some drops now fall on me;
Even me, even me,
Let some drops now fall on me.
Pass me not, O God, my Father,
Sinful though my heart may be;
Thou might’st leave me, but the rather;
Let Thy mercy light on me;
Pass me not, O gracious Saviour,
Let me live and cling to Thee;
I am longing for Thy favour;
Whilst Thou’rt calling, O call me;
Pass me not, O mighty Spirit!
Thou canst make the blind to see;
Witness of the Saviour’s merit,
Speak the Word of power to me;
Have I been in sin long sleeping,
Long been slighting, grieving Thee?
Has the world my heart been keeping?
Oh! forgive and rescue me.
Love of God, so pure and changeless,
Blood of Christ, so rich and free;
Grace of God, so strong and boundless
Magnify them all in me;
Pass me not; but pardon bringing,
Bind my heart, O Lord, to Thee;
Whilst the streams of life are springing,
Blessing others, O bless me;
