I wake today as the sun

Began to climb the sky,

And send its rays o’er all the earth

With more than dew to dry.

For it had rained the night before,

A gentle, cooling rain

That washed God’s earth, the grass and trees

And made them clean again.


Oh, that God would send a rain

Upon this heart of mine,

And wash it as He washed the earth

With gentle drops, so fune.

‘twould be a new day in my life,

The sun would brighter be,

And darkness would be left behind;

My heart would then be free.
