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 fulfil Thy work of Love.

3. Lord, behold this congregation;
Precious promises fulfil.
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.
