Words and Music: Matt Crocker, Marty Sampson
Album: Open Heaven / River Wild
Release: 2015

Details: This is where they got the title of the album. The song is about asking God for His blessing to pour out from heaven like how the rain touches the soil. Sometimes in the cycle of life we get drought, our spirit faint like we are so far away from God. This is the best time for us to sing this song asking for God to once again, like He is always doing, come down to us and bless us with His grace. Renew us with His love. And restore the faith so again we will worship him in endless praise.
