ALARMING DROUGHT




Oh Lord, we tremble at thy frown,
And dread thy scourging hand;
The varied sins and crimes we own,
Of this our guilty land.


But spare, oh Lord, in mercy spare
The herbage of the field;
And under thy paternal care,
May it abundance yield.


Restrain the solar fervid ray,
And grant refreshing rains;
Restore the verdure from decay,
And drench the parched plains.


But speak the word, and soon shall rise
The faint and withered grain;
And hopeful prospects of supplies,
Our hearts shall raise again.


Then we our gratitude will show,
To our preserver, God;
Our songs of melody shall flow,
And spread his praise abroad.
