Tenors & Basses
 

God sent His messenger, the rain,
And said unto the mountain brook,
"Rise up, rise up, and from thy caverns look,
And leap, with naked snow-white feet,
From the cool hills into the heat
Of the broad and arid plain.
Rise up, and leap, with naked snow-white feet,
From the cool hills into the heat
Of the broad and arid plain,
The broad and arid plain.

Sopranos & Altos
 

God sent his messenger of faith,
And whisper'd in the maiden's heart,
Rise up, rise up, and look from where thou art,
And scatter with unselfish hands
Thy freshness on the barren sands
And solitudes of death;
Rise up, rise up, and look from where thou art,
And scatter with unselfish hands
Thy freshness on the barren sands
And solitudes of death,
The solitudes of death.
