Can You Hear the Rain
(the night the rain does cry)
06 June 2009

On a dark night, you light up the sky,
As I hear your name, upon my heart
One night, one night of you in love,
This night of prayer, to never end

Can you hear the rain, the night the rain does cry,
Can you hear my tears, as they weep, and wave goodbye
Every night and every tear,
As I cry your name without any fear or blame

Can you hear my tears, as they weep and wave goodbye
Can you hear my heart, and the blood does run
Can you hear the rain, the night the rain does cry,
Can you hear my tears, as they weep and wave goodbye

Every night and every tear, I look to God and ask why
Can you hear what I have to say, of my love for you
Have you heard the rain, the night the rain did cry
Can you hear the rain, the night the rain does cry,

Can you hear my tears, as they weep and wave goodbye
Can you hear the rain upon my heart in all love
Can you hear the rain, the night the rain does cry,
Every night and every tear, I look to God and ask why

Can you hear the rain, that sound in your ears,
To have lived this pain throughout the years
Can you hear the rain, the night the rain does cry
My gentle love and all you do bring,

My strength and faith in God to sing
On a dark night, you light up the sky,
As you hear your name upon my heart
One night, one night of you in love,

This night of prayer to never end
Can you hear the rain,
The night the rain does cry

Can you hear my soul speak
Can you hear my sorrow, in all there is to give
Can you hear my love, the love I hold for you
In all the hope I have to give

My freedom the treasure of your soul
Are you listening. Are you ready to understand
Can you hear the rain, the night the rain does cry,

To have lived this pain throughout the years
As I hear your name upon my heart
One night, one night of you in love,

This night of prayer to never end
Can you hear the rain,
the night the rain does cry
