Showers of Blessings (Hymn)

Showers of Blessings
Fanny Crosby

Here in Thy Name we are gathered,
Come and revive us, O Lord;
“There shall be showers of blessing,”
Thou hast declared in Thy Word.

Refrain

Oh, graciously hear us,
Graciously hear us, we pray:
Pour from Thy windows upon us
Showers of blessing today.

Oh! that the showers of blessing,
Now on our souls may descend,
While at the footstool of mercy
Pleading Thy promise we bend!

Refrain

“There shall be showers of blessing,”
Promise that never can fail;
Thou wilt regard our petition;
Surely our faith will prevail.

Refrain

Showers of blessing, we need them,
Showers of blessing from Thee;
Showers of blessing, oh, grant them,
Thine all the glory shall be.

Refrain

We do truly need “showers of blessings.”  Before coming across these lyrics, I was not familiar with this hymn.  I was actually looking for a different hymn of the same name.  But this is a good hymn that reminds us where blessings come from and how to get them.  My dad likes to say “Don’t ask God to bless what you do; find out what God blesses and do it.”  We need and want the blessing of God on our lives.   We need to do those things that He is going to bless!
