Here in Thy name we are ga­thered,
Come and re­vive us, O Lord;
There shall be show­ers of bless­ing,
Thou hast de­clared in Thy Word.


Oh, gra­cious­ly hear us,
Graciously hear us, we pray:
Pour from Thy win­dows up­on us
Showers of bless­ing to­day.

Oh! that the show­ers of bless­ing,
Now on our souls may des­cend,
While at the foot­stool of mer­cy
Pleading Thy pro­mise we bend!


There shall be show­ers of bless­ing,
Promise that ne­ver can fail;
Thou wilt re­gard our pe­ti­tion;
Surely our faith will pre­vail.


Showers of bless­ing, we need them,
Showers of bless­ing from Thee;
Showers of bless­ing, oh, grant them,
Thine all the glo­ry shall be.
