Help Us To See And Understand

God, give us wider vision
to see and understand
That both the sun and showers are gifts from Thy great hand.

Ant teach us that it takes the showers
to make the flowers grow

And only in the storms of life
when the winds of trouble blow
Lightning Strikes in Moscow During a Violent Rain Storm

can man, too, reach maturity
and grow in faith and grace,

And gain the strength and courage
to enable him to face
Sunny days as well as rain,
high peaks as well as low,

Knowing that the April showers
will make the May glowers grow.

Beautiful and so very true! We are seeing that illustration lived out literally in the south with our current drought. It takes rain to make fruit!
