lyrics

Small-town Nebraska where the corn and cotton grow,
when your brother was your neighbor ’bout three miles down the road,
hadn’t seen a decent rain in at least a couple years.
When you visit that city, there’s a story that you’ll hear.

The crops had withered up back in 1948
when the farmers gathered at the church, praying for rain.
Most were in their overalls and dusty, worn-out boots,
but one old man came dressed in a yellow rubber suit.

You gotta have hope for the harvest, acres of faith,
when you go to the father and ask in Jesus’ name.
Expect that he’ll deliver when you bow your head to pray.
He is faithful to answer when you got acres of faith.

Well, 30 minutes in and the pew began to shake
with the sound of that old man as he began to pray.
He shouted out “Amen” and stumbled to his feet,
put on his rubber hat, stepped out into the street.

You gotta have hope for the harvest, acres of faith,
when you go to the father and ask in Jesus’ name.
Expect that he’ll deliver when you bow your head to pray.
He is faithful to answer when you got acres of faith.

First came the thunder, then came the rain
filling the rivers and flooding the banks.
But to this day, none have a clue
where went that old man in that yellow rubber suit.

You gotta have hope for the harvest, acres of faith,
when you go to the father and ask in Jesus’ name.
Expect that he’ll deliver when you bow your head to pray.
He is faithful to answer when you got acres of faith.
