Key signature: B flat major (2 flats)
Meter: 188.8.131.52. with Refrain
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: Mercydrops 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:” O, that today they might fall, Now as to God we’re confessing, Now, as on Jesus we call!
