Heard this song at a retreat I just got back from... absolutely fell in love with it. Lyrics are so powerful... Follow along as you listen - I've put them below.

Thanks to this instrumental version by username 'ElizaGabriel', I was able to record the vocals to it.

Lyrics:
Send some rain, would You send some rain?

Cause the earth is dry and needs to drink again

And the sun is high and we are sinking in the shade

Would You send a cloud, thunder long and loud?

Let the sky grow black and send some mercy down

Surely You can see that we are thirsty and afraid

But maybe not, not today

Maybe You'll provide in other ways

And if that's the case . . .




We'll give thanks to You, with gratitude

For lessons learned in how to thirst for You

How to bless the very sun that warms our face

If You never send us rain

Daily bread, give us daily bread

Bless our bodies, keep our children fed

Fill our cups, then fill them up again tonight

Wrap us up and warm us through

Tucked away beneath our sturdy roofs

Let us slumber safe from danger's view this time


Or maybe not, not today

Maybe You'll provide in other ways

And if that's the case . . .




We'll give thanks to You, with gratitude

A lesson learned to hunger after You

That a starry sky offers a better view if no roof is overhead
And if we never taste that bread




Oh, the differences that often are between

Everything we want and what we really need

So grant us peace, Jesus, grant us peace

Move our hearts to hear a single beat, between alibis and enemies tonight

Or maybe not, not today

Peace might be another world away

And if that's the case . . .




We'll give thanks to You
, with gratitude

For lessons learned in how to trust in You

That we are blessed beyond what we could ever dream

In abundance or in need

And if You never grant us peace
But Jesus, would You please . . .
