Bring me Rain by Mercy Me is one of those songs that you can enjoy just because it sounds wonderful and soothing. But as you really look at the lyrics you come to see that it is a praise song that asks you to do more than worship your Lord to draw closer to Him. It asks you to surrender to Him to draw closer to Him.
It’s one thing to ask God to be there with you through the dark seasons of rain in your life, it’s another to ask him to BRING the rain. Sounds a little nutty. But this song comes from a place that you are willing to risk everything to be closer to your Lord.
Look at these lyrics:
Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there’ll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that’s what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain
Tall words, powerful words, needed words. Take a listen…
