College Song

There shall be showers of blessing;
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.
Showers of blessing!
Showers of blessings we need;
Mercy-drops round us are falling
But for the showers we plead.

There shall be showers of blessing
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.
