Let It Rain - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

Smile down on us oh Lord
Smile with flood of tears
Wet our hardened grounds
Free us from the plight of drought
Send us million drops from above

Just as the sun rise upon the good and bad
Pour your rain upon us all
Quench us from all our thirsts
Cool us for we daily burn
Cleanse us we plead

Let it rain oh Lord Let it rain
Open the flood gates of heaven
Shower the world with your mercy
Pardon us, spare us from pain
Father for your rain we pray

Heal our tattered horizons
That no longer shield us
Tame the aggressive sun rays
Spare us from their scotch
Bar the heatwaves

Let it rain oh Lord Let it rain
Quench our thirst
Nourish our dry lands
Fill the empty lakes
Restore life to all beings
