Life Giving Rain
There is a life giving substance named rain
Lack of it causes the earth stress and pain
God may send rain from the east or the west
Or from the north or the south, He knows best
The thirsty land waits for those showers
Just look at all those sadly wilted flowers
Man can make a ship, a train, or a plane
But only the good Lord can make the rain
In Elijah's time it rained not for over three years
The only moisture that fell came from tears
But Elijah prayed and much rain came that day
Greened up the plants and kept the drought at bay
When our land is scorched and filled with dust
We can pray to our God who is mighty and just
He will answer our prayers and send the rain
We will know that our prayers were not in vain
