From the song cycle, “Thus Saith the Lord”. The lovely raindrops in the accompaniment are tone painting at its finest! The chordal sections anchor the setting in a major key assurance of God’s care, and “all the trees . . . clap their hands.”
For as the Rain Cometh Down
Text: Bible Isaiah 55:10-12, kjv
Composer: Robert J. Powell
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven,
And returneth not thither, but watereth the earth,
And maketh it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
It shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish
That which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing
Whereto I sent it.
For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace:
The mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands,
All the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
