As the Dew from Heaven Distilling

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 149

1. As the dew from heav’n distilling Gently on the grass descends And revives it, thus fulfilling What thy providence intends,

2. Let thy doctrine, Lord, so gracious, Thus descending from above, Blest by thee, prove efficacious To fulfill thy work of love.

3. Lord, behold this congregation; Precious promises fulfill. From thy holy habitation Let the dews of life distill.

4. Let our cry come up before thee. Thy sweet Spirit shed around, So the people shall adore thee And confess the joyful sound.
