Lyrics
THANK YOU LORD FOR SENDIN? THE RAIN
By
Anne Hinton Pratt

Thank you Lord for sendin? the rain!
Thank you Lord for sendin? the pain!
I want to grow to be, the man I aught to be,
Oh, Thank you Lord for sendin? the rain!

Just as seeds are planted in the early days of spring.
I was planted deep in toil, and was in misery.
Because I could no help myself,
I fell down to my knees!
God showered me from up above,
With wisdom and with peace.

Thank you Lord for sendin? the rain!
Thank you Lord for sendin? the pain!
I want to grow to be, the man I aught to be,
Oh, Thank you Lord for sendin? the rain!

I want to grow and to become, and not sit on the shelf.
The Lord can do much more with me,
Than I can do myself.
If I?ll give in to his great will,
And let Him be my guide.
He?ll stretch me to the limit,
While walking by my side.

Thank you Lord for sendin? the rain!
Thank you Lord for sendin? the pain!
I want to grow to be, the man I aught to be,
Oh, Thank you Lord for sendin?
I?m not just pretendin,?
Thank you Lord for sendin? the rain!
