Rain from Heaven

Rain from heaven fell on my roof this AM
I awoke wondering, what’s that noise?
Pouring rain is one of my greatest joys
God’s commodity all earth employs
A raindrop is greater than any gem

Not that I have anything against them
Sparkling beauty, I can’t condemn
But which has greater grace and poise?
Rain from heaven

Flowers drink rain from roots through stem
Humans drink grace from the great I am
Like rain, grace refreshes and destroys
dryness and the stuff evil deploys
If we can just touch Christ’s hem
Rain from Heaven
