There Shall be Showers of Blessing

This hymn, which uses raindrops to as a metaphor for God's mercy, was written by Daniel Webster Whittle (1840-1901), and also published under the pseudonym El Nathan. It is based on Ezekiel 34:26. It was first published in 1883.

With meter with refrain, it is set to the tune SHOWERS OF BLESSING by James McGranahan (1840-1907).

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

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.

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

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!
