969. What Would Come to Pass?

1 What if the little rain should say,
“So small a drop as I
Can ne’er refresh those thirsty fields,
I’ll tarry in the sky;
I’ll tarry in the sky,
I’ll tarry in the sky,
I can’t refresh those thirsty fields,
I’ll tarry in the sky”!

2 What if a shining beam of noon
Should in its fountain stay,
Because its feeble light alone
Cannot create a day;
Cannot create a day,
Cannot create a day,
Because its feeble light alone
Cannot create a day!

3 Does not each raindrop help to form
The cool, refreshing show’r?
And every ray of light to warm
And beautify the flow’r?
And beautify the flow’r,
And beautify the flow’r,
And every ray of light to warm
And beautify the flow’r?
