Send the rain.

This year at church, when the choir started up again after their summer break, Holly and I both decided to join.  It has been a long, long time since either of us sang in a choir and we are really enjoying it, even though the voices aren't quite what they used to be.  We are hoping that with some time and some practice, the voices may respond and improve.

This morning the anthem was a song titled "Hiding in the Shadow of God (Send the Rain)".  Even though we have been rehearsing it for several weeks, today the words just came alive for me.  I could see the mighty wings of God covering me as the rains come down. Towards the end it says "And in this test I know that I am blessed, I can rest, my God is here!"


There's a safety on this journey;
there are wings to break my fall.
And when there's harm
I'm folded in God's arms,
I am held before I call.

There is shelter from the evil,
there's still light on days of gray.
And in the storm God's presence keeps me warm,
giving faith so I can say,

"Send the rain, let the wind blow.
I am covered by the mighty wings of love.
I will not fear, I've stopped running.
I'm hiding in the shadow of God."

Walk before me in the darkness,
and hold me up when others fall.
Give me the grace to seek and know Your face
and to recognize your call.

Send the rain, let the wind blow.
I am covered by the mighty wings of love.
I will not fear, I've stopped running
I'm hiding in the shadow of God.

In the shadow there is refuge, 
I will not be conquered by my fear.
And in this test I know that I am blessed.
I can rest, my God is here!

Send the rain, let the wind blow.
I am covered by the mighty wings of love.
I will not fear, I've stopped running.
I'm hiding in the shadow; there's peace within the shadow.
I'm hiding in the shadow of God.

There's a safety on this journey
hiding in the shadow of God.


I had to lip sync most of the song.  Because when I opened my mouth to sing, my voice broke so badly it was pointless to continue to try.  So the rains may come, and the winds may blow, but I know that I am covered by the mighty wings of love.
