During a drive home from a christian songwriters meeting, I was overcome by the feeling of being loved by Christ.
As I was meditating on His love it started to rain and this song was basically finished by the time I reached home…


Lyrics

Love Rain On Me

Walking through this dry and thirsty land
I try so hard to take a stand for all that I believe
I know sometimes I stumble
I find myself in trouble
Every time I try to take the lead
But when I look past myself, to the Cross of Christ
I find everything I need…

And I feel His love rain on me
Love rain on me
When I lay my burdens down
Before the Throne of Peace
I feel His love rain on me…

Surrounded by a world of distraction
Shackled by my own inaction
I don’t do what I know I ought to do
I promise next time to try harder
But God is not into barter
There is nothing as inconvenient as the truth
But when I stop pretending and fall on my knees repenting
I understand why He had to bleed…

And I feel His love rain on me
Love rain on me
When I lay my burdens down
Before the Throne of Peace
I feel His love rain on me…

I was one who drove the nails, one who rolled the dice
I mocked and spit on the Prince of Peace
But with sin’s death debt paid I lift my hands in praise
And thank the Lord for sweet release…

And I feel His love rain on me
Love rain on me
When I lay my burdens down
Before the Throne of Peace
I feel His love rain on me…
