  APRIL 2018

 

 

There Shall Be Showers of Blessing



Most of us are familiar with the song “April Showers”.  We may even remember Judy Garland and Al Jolson singing their slight variations of it.  This being the month of April, we can expect rain showers, possibly in abundance.  This reminded me of the hymn “There Shall Be Showers of Blessing”.  It is one of my old time favorites.  It is number 289 in our hymnal.  The lyrics were written by Daniel W. Whittle and the music by James McGranahan back in 1883, 135 years ago.  It is still vibrant and a blessing to sing today.   The original writing of it has five stanzas rather just the four in our hymnal.

 

                                                    

1.  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


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

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

4.  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!

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



As we launch out into the month of April, let’s do it asking the Lord to pour out his blessings upon us and help us to share Him, our Savior, Jesus Christ, and our blessings with others.


God bless!   Fred
