Lyrics

The rain came knocking on the window pane,
The rain came knocking on the window pane,
The rain came knocking on the window pane, 
Sent to us from God.

The stars came twinkling in the darkened sky ...

The sun came shining through the open door ...

The flowers came peeping through the green, green grass ...

The lambs came frisking in the open fields ...

The babes came smiling in their mother's arms ...
