Awaiting the Promise to Come

This morning, in church, we sang this beautiful praise song.  I hadn't heard it before and the lyrics really touched my heart. They eased the burden I have been carrying concerning the recent events in the world.

These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said,‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I. ~ John 14:25-28


Hear the Word, roaring as thunder
With a new future to tell
For the dry season is over
There is a cloud beginning to swell

To the skies heavy with blessing
Lift your eyes, offer your heart
Jesus Christ, opened the Heavens
Now we receive, the Spirit of God

We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain

Every seed buried in sorrow
You will call forth in its time
You are Lord, Lord of the harvest
Calling our hope now to arise

We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain

Like a flood, like a flood
We receive Your love when You come
Like a flood, like a flood
We receive Your love when You come

Like a flood, like a flood
We receive Your love when You come
Like a flood, like a flood
We receive Your love

And with great, anticipation
We await the Promise to come
Everything that You have spoken
Will come to pass let it be done!

We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain
We receive Your rain

Elevation Worship,
There is a Cloud

  1. I like it ~ and have never heard it before.
    I can relate, dear friend, the events of the world are just drawing me closer to the Lord, moment by moment. He is whom we have to hold on to to get us through each day.
    Hugs and God bless,
    Anne ♥

We all have our “good old days” tucked away inside our hearts, and we return to them in dreams like cats to favorite armchairs. ~ B. Carter
