We were sleeping when it all began,
When spirits walked with open hands,
And the water parted from the land,
We were sleeping when it all begin.

The blessed rain falls like grace,
Without regard to wealth or race,
And returns to vapor from this place,
The blessed rain it falls like grace.

Look away look away,
Hot and dry as it's been,
It's a wonder when the rain begins.
The rain begins.

The birds go quiet when the twilight falls,
As we sit silent in the ache and awe,
And another world has always called,
The birds go quiet when the twilight falls.

We wait wounded one by one,
And those of us less grieved than some,
Give bread and breath it's nearly done,
And hope the healing still might come.

Look away look away,
Hot and dry as it's been,
It's a wonder when the rain begins.
The rain begins.

So count the stars that shine tonight,
As if each star were prayers in flight,
Only love can make it right,
So count the stars that shine tonight.

Look away look away,
Hot and dry as it's been,
It's a wonder when the rain begins.
The rain begins.
