Story behind the song
"(92)Environment Canada meteorologist Dale Marciski says last month was the driest July on record in Winnipeg with only 10 millimeters of rain and amounts were similar across much of southern Manitoba." The news item caused me to reflect on the spiritual drought that is so rampant in our society. Clearly the result of a nation that has abandoned our spiritual heritage in search of “other gods”. But the promise remains - “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and seek my face … I will hear from heaven ...”
Lord the heavens have been closed because we've strayed so far from You There's a thirsting in our spirits for the early morning dew We had blessings in abundance – but now they seem so few We stand humbled in Your presence – and the only thing to do (is to cry) Lord – (won't You please) send the rain Send us times of refreshing once again (Send us times of refreshing once again) We need rest from all our labors and healing from the pain Oh Lord (in Your mercy) send the rain (send the rain) Lord the locust has invaded and there's mildew in the field And we've given up on hoping that this barren land will yield But we're clinging to the promise that Your word will be our shield To the people that are watching let Your mercy be revealed (as we cry) There's a rumble in the distance – clouds have gathered in the sky There are pools of refreshing rain where once the land was dry And we know the God of Mercy has listened to our cry And because we are His children He will never pass us by (when we cry)
