Send Rain

Rain on Purple  

LORD, send rain from Heaven

Into the garden of my heart

By gentle shower or heavy flood,

Water every dry, scorched part.


Decrease my selfish desires

Increase my desire for Thee.

Fill me with Thy Holy Spirit

That Thy beauty others see.


No raincoat of performance

Or umbrella of good deeds

Can substitute for the power

Of deeply rooted Truth seeds:


Seeds planted in fertile soil

Covered tenderly with Love

By the Maker of my human heart

Who can send rain from Above.
