Send Us Rain
The day was bright after the very cold night,
Stars were shining bright,
And then the sun rays came forth onto the sky, and day was born,
The sun rose slowly onto the land
The men and women started to work it with their hands,
Some tractors were heard and sound did come forth,
The men got up and looked toward the gate
Lunch was being served and it was food they did not hate.
Work they did again and supper then was served,
The horses were fed tractors filled with petrol,
Ready for a new bright day
The food was set within the ground
It was now on the way
As the sun rose after each and every day
Little tiny seeds began to grow within the fields
After a few months of growth the farmer saw the yield
Men’s backs were hurting gathering up the sheaves
But it put food on the table and drink in their mouths,
Life was still for the living and the ground yielded its grain
Please dear God send us rain
