Like summer rain falling on my shoulder: easing the pain of a long dry day
When I am weary: let your love come over, lifting up my tired heart like summer rain
Like the hot blazing sun beating on your shoulders: Problems of this life can cause your strength to fade away
In the pressure of these times: Things can soon take over. Causing me to look above: for summer rain.
Life can be so hard it can make you to stumble; It can break your very heart: it can make you humble
Where’d you go when the simplest things: all feel like a chain? That’s when I start looking up for summer rain...
Time quickly slips away, feels like surrender: friends you used to know and love faces you remember: sometimes you can feel so alone: travelling on life’s way. Why not turn your face above: for summer rain.
There are promises: both true and faithful.
There’s a love that always lasts, and will never fail you.
There’s a place that’s fresh and new while this worlds decaying:
And a friend waits there for you: with love that’s never changing…
There’ve been times I’ve fallen down underneath the strain accusing voices gather round: adding to the shame
But I remember there was a time when you were feeling quite the same. So I lift my face to you for your summer rain
There’s a place where we can hide: When this world is shaking: There’s a cleft above the tide: A rock of Gods own making…
There’s a feast that he’s prepared when enemies surround us and at his table he will share mercy and kindness
So when the trials of this life all seem to call your name: when you’ve spoken all your words and still can’t explain: Know that there’s a friend who’d love to share the deepness of your pain: just to turn your face above for summer rain
