Lyrics

  1. 1. As the dew from heav'n distilling
    Gently on the grass descends
    And revives it, thus fulfilling
    What thy providence intends,
  2. 2. Let thy doctrine, Lord, so gracious,
    Thus descending from above,
    Blest by thee, prove efficacious
    To fulfill thy work of love.
  3. 3. Lord, behold this congregation;
    Precious promises fulfill.
    From thy holy habitation
    Let the dews of life distill.
  4. 4. Let our cry come up before thee.
    Thy sweet Spirit shed around,
    So the people shall adore thee
    And confess the joyful sound.
  5. Text: Thomas Kelly, 1769-1854
    Music: Joseph J. Daynes, 1851-1920
