Jesus, Softer Than the Falling Rain

“Jesus” softer than the falling rain
-
Precious there, a broken heart
Ne’r a weakness to impart
Tis strength disguised, in humble gates
Where artful waves of streaming tears
Learn to lose, because of love
Softer than the falling rain
True Love gains and lives again
Where new dreams doth emerge and call
And fill the hollow, healed in grace
The island is not merely lone
When water all around it’s sides
Keeps it buffered for a time
Until the island meets it’s form
Where substance of our faith is born
