There Shall Be Showers Of Blessing – So Keep Us From Church In The Rain

Some years ago I bought a book in a used book store. Sometime after I got home an old newspaper clipping fell out. I picked it up and it was a humorous article that listed several traditional hymns and then said something about our human condition. As you can read from the title, the song is above. It goes to the tune of “Showers of Blessings”

Sometime ago I lost the newspaper clipping and I can only remember four of the ten or so songs. These are a little longer than my usual Saturday post but there were things that needed to be said. Enjoy.


17“Now then, my flock, I, the Sovereign LORD, tell you that I will judge each of you and separate the good from the bad, the sheep from the goats. 18Some of you are not satisfied with eating the best grass; you even trample down what you don’t eat! You drink the clear water and muddy what you don’t drink! 19My other sheep have to eat the grass you trample down and drink the water you muddy. (Ezekiel 34:17-19, Good News Translation).


There shall be showers of blessing
From God a promise we gain,
We hear the blessings on roof-tops
It sounds a whole lot like rain;

Showers of blessing,
Blessings God knows that we need
We think we’ll melt just like sugar,
So, from the showers we flee


There shall be showers of blessing
raincoats will keep our clothes dry
wet is my head as the rain falls
lost that umbrella of mine…


Showers of blessing,
Blessings God knows that we need
We think we’ll melt just like sugar,
So, from the showers we flee.

There shall be showers of blessing
I pray the waters soon peak.
blessings on blessings around me,
rain hasn’t stopped here all week…


Showers of blessing,
Blessings God knows that we need
We think we’ll melt just like sugar,
So, from the showers we flee.


There shall be showers of blessing
The dog tries to shake his fur dry.
He raised his head to the heavens
And barks at the rain in the sky…


Showers of blessing,
Blessings God knows that we need
We think we’ll melt just like sugar,
So, from the showers we flee.


There shall be showers of blessing,
Today I stayed home on a lark.
blessings are gone its just water,
I think I will build me an ark;


Showers of blessing,
Blessings God knows that we need
We think we’ll melt just like sugar,
So, from the showers we flee.


There shall be showers of blessing,
Thunder won’t run me away.
We need some rain for a harvest
Thank God I’m in Church today


Showers of blessing,
Some rain will not keep us away
We will not melt we’re not sugar
Through showers we’ll worship today.
