Lyrics

There shall be show­ers of bless­ing:
This is the pro­mise of love;
There shall be sea­sons re­fresh­ing,
Sent from the Sav­ior above.

Refrain

Showers of bless­ing,
Showers of bless­ing we need:
Mercy drops round us are fall­ing,
But for the show­ers we plead.

There shall be show­ers of bless­ing,
Precious re­viv­ing again;
Over the hills and the val­leys,
Sound of abun­dance of rain.

Refrain

There shall be show­ers of bless­ing;
Send them up­on us, O Lord;
Grant to us now a re­fresh­ing,
Come, and now hon­or Thy Word.

Refrain

There shall be show­ers of bless­ing:
Oh, that to­day they might fall,
Now as to God we’re con­fess­ing,
Now as on Je­sus we call!

Refrain

There shall be show­ers of bless­ing,
If we but trust and ob­ey;
There shall be sea­sons re­fresh­ing,
If we let God have His way.
