The legend of the raindrop Has a lesson for us all As it trembled in the the Heavens Questioning if it should fall For the glistening raindrop argued By the genie of the sky I am beautiful and lovely As a sparkle here on high

And hanging here I will become Part of the rainbow's hue And I'll shimmer like a diamond For all the world to view

But the genie told the raindrop "Why do you hesitate to go?" For you will be more beautiful If you fall to earth below

For you will sink in the soil And be at lost awhile from sight But when you reappear on earth You will be looked upon with delight

For you will be the raindrop That quenched the thirsty ground And helped the lovely flowers To blossom all around

And in your resurrection You'll appear in queenly clothes With the beauty of the sky And the fragrance of the rose

For there is nothing lost Or eternally neglected For everything God ever made Is always resurrected

So trust God's all wise wisdom And doubt the Father never For in His Heavenly Kingdom There is nothing lost forever
