What Is Rain?


A child looked out the window 
on a rainy, dreary day. 
Then he spoke to his mommy 
here's what she heard him say. 

"When rain falls down does it mean 
God's crying cause He's sad, 
About the things He sees on earth 
with people who are bad"? 

"Are those His tears that trickle down 
across the window pane, 
Or is there really not a God 
and this is only rain? " 

His mommy thought what can I say 
to help him understand, 
That this is rain, but God is real 
it's all part of His plan. 

Then softly she began to speak 
and she heard herself say, 
That's really rain, it's not God's tears 
He's growing things today. 

The child looked up into a smile 
he'd seen most every day, 
He listened so intently now 
to hear what she would say. 

"All living things need water 
that's all part of God's plan. 
That's why out in the desert 
there's not much more than sand". 

"But in this place where God makes rain 
grow flowers, grass and trees, 
That feed and shelter animals 
like the birds, the deer and bees". 

"God may be sad because people don't 
believe in Him today, 
But rain is one thing that we should 
thank Him for when we pray". 

"So every night we all should kneel 
and say thanks for the rain, 
Cause if we didn't have it son 
This world would be so plain". 

"Without the trees to shade us 
or the grass beneath our feet, 
This world that we all live in 
would seem so incomplete". 

"But God in all His glory 
created all these things, 
To help give us all pleasure 
Till we hear the angels sing".
