"SWEET from the rain:" the scentless shower
Upon the earth descends;
And all Arabia, in tire flower,
Its thousand odours, blends.
"Sweet from the rain:" so human hearts
Grow tender, after tears;
And sorrow, sanctified, imparts
The peace of happier spheres.
"Sweet from the rain:" beloved, so
Thy kindness soothes my heart;
And joys, I thought no more to know,
Their sympathies impart.
"Sweet from the rain:" the heavenly grace
On sinful souls, is poured;
And from the lost and guilty race,
Rise praises, to the Lord.
