Suggested Tune ROYAL OAK (7.6.7.6 and refrain.)


Chorus: Burning sands will soon become a spring
See! Pools where once was dry.
Now we sigh but soon you'll hear us sing
and laugh where once we cried!

 

1.  A wilderness, oh so dry,
each heart that thirsts for you;
So quench us, Lord, oh hear our cry!
Oh, bring our hearts to bloom.

 

2.  We feeble, frail beings of dust
our hearts are insecure;
Oh, make strong, and teach us trust
and help us to be sure:

 

3.  The signs are all around now;
Say, can you smell the rain?
Hark! From the desert comes a sound -
a prophet who proclaims:

 

4.  The signs are you and I now -
the hearts that He transforms;
The blind who see, the lame who walk;
The mute who sing this song:
