1 Sing when the rain is coming,
sing when the clouds are grey,
sing when the birds are homing
under the darkening day;
Saviour and Lord confessing
children of heavenly birth,
for the rain will provide a blessing
for the earth.
2 Sing when the rain is falling,
not knowing what shall be;
sing when the streams are calling,
rushing and full and free.
Sing through the midnight sorrows,
sing in the day serene,
till the dawning of new tomorrows
fresh and green.
3 Sing when the rain is over,
sing when the sun shines clear;
sing of the Lord's good favour,
goodness and mercy here.
Sing out the ancient story,
sing till we see his face,
praising Jesus, the Lord of glory
and of grace.
