"Let It Rain" as written by Steve Taylor, Steve Taylor and Peter Furler....
And I have watched in wonder
As with a word You calmed a raging sea
I have seen You make the wine from water
Mud and water made a blind man see
Water still reminds me
Of the seaside where our eyes first met

Let it rain
Lord, we're waiting for Your rain to fall
Let it rain
Bringing back the wonder of it all
And I can see Your face again
When You let it rain

And I've been bathed in mercy
By every gesture, every word You've said
Once I spoke of power and high position
You took a towel and washed my feet instead
Water, like a promise
Heaven opens, but I'm not there yet

Let it rain

I've been foolish
Thought I knew it all
Three times I denied Your name
Your forgiveness, like a waterfall
Washes away my shame

A new dawn is breaking
Another hour, and then I leave this place
I am ready, Lord, to give my life up
I'm so ready, Lord, to see Your face
Water, like a promise
And in this final hour, I think my final prayer shall be
Would You let it rain?

Let Your Spirit fall afresh on me

Let it rain

    General CommentYou guys got it sort of right.

    This song is about Peter. The lyrics give it away.

    Peter saw Jesus Calm the Sea of Galilee, he was at the wedding in Cana where Jesus made the water into wine, he saw Him make mud and wash it away so the blind man could see. And Peter was a fisherman before he became a disciple. So, "the seaside where our eyes first met"

    Peter spoke of power and high position, but Jesus always tried to teach him humility. Jesus washed Peter's feet.

    Peter denied Jesus 3 times, but repented and became one of the foundations of the church.

    And then Peter was crucified upside down on a cross, a martyr for the Cause.

    As for the chorus, the Rain is the Holy Spirit (Peter was also there on the Day of Pentecost when the Great Comfortor came to them the first time.

    General CommentI agree with that, the touching and relaxing part.
    A person just letting it go, he is dying. Just finally getting a break in his life evenr though its about to end. and the rain is not a sad event, but a joy. Reminding you that we are clean and washed.

    General CommentYeah, it's about how the guys going to die and hes looking forward to seeing Jesus again, who he spent time on earth with. He wants it to rain once more while he is on earth.

    Heaven opens, but I'm not there yet - hes still alive on earth, not in heaven yet.

    Another hour, and the I leave this place.
    I am ready, Lord, to give my life up,
    I'm so ready, Lord, to see Your face.

    He's ready to die and to go in to the afterlife, where he will meet Jesus christ.
