Let It Rain and Healing Rain- Michael W. Smith

I wanted to take a moment today and honor my friend and webmaster Mark Elliot.
I attended his memorial service yesterday. It was a sweet time of gathering with family and friends at the church. I am so deeply appreciative of all the new beginnings of having my own website. And so grateful for all of you who visit my blog. I thank you for stopping by. Folks, everyone we meet is for a reason... there is a purpose.
There's a special song by Michael W. Smith, Let It Rain, that is easy for the beginner and intermediate piano player. You can see the different chord charts listed below. I personally like vamping on C#, G#, Bbm, and F#. It 's fun to play on those black keys!

Another favorite song of mine is Healing Rain!

C
Healing rain is coming down
C
It's coming nearer to this old town
C
Rich and poor, weak and strong
C
It's bringing mercy, it won't be long
C
Healing rain is coming down
C
It's coming closer to the lost and found
C
Tears of joy, and tears of shame
C
Are washed forever in Jesus' name
G Am
Healing rain, it co mes with fire
F C
So let it fall and take us higher
G Am
Healing rain, I'm not afraid
F C
To be washed in Heaven's rain
C
Lift your heads, let us return
C
To the mercy seat where time began
C
And in your eyes, I see the pain
C
Come soak this dry heart with healing rain
G Am
And only You, the Son of man
F C
Can take a leper and let him stand
G Am
So lift your hands, they can be held
F C
By someone greater, the great I Am
G Am
Healing rain, it comes with fire
F C
So let it fall and take us higher
G Am
Healing rain, I'm not afraid
F
To be washed in Heaven's rain
C G
To be washed in Heaven's rain...
C
Healing rain is falling down
G
Healing rain is falling down
Am
I'm not afraid
F
I'm not afraid...
