(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
Lord, I hear of show’rs of blessing
Thou art scatt’ring full and free;
Shaw,rs the thirsty land refreshing —
Let some drops now fall on me.
Even me, even me
Let Thy blessing fall on me.
Pass me not, O tender Savior!
Let me love and cling to Thee;
I am longing for Thy favor –
Whilst Thou’rt calling, O call me.
Pass me not, O mighty Spirit!
Thou canst make the blind to see;
Witnesser of Jesus’ merit,
Speak the word of pow’r to me.
Love of God so pure and changeless,
Blood of Christ so rich and free,
Grace of God so strong and boundless;
Magnify them all in me.
Pass me not! Thy lost one bringing,
Bind my heart, O Lord, to Thee;
While the streams of life are springing,
Blessing others, O bless me.
