“The Rain” is composed and sung by Sister Chân Đức (Sr. True Virtue), or Sister Annabel, as she is known to many. We hope you enjoy this tender and gentle song. For those of us with some worry or trouble in this moment, may the rain of compassionate understanding soak deeply into the soil of our hearts, and restore our peace and freshness.

Written, Composed by Sr. Chan Duc (True Virtue)

The rain is falling so softly
Washing every leaf of every tree
Washing every care
Namo 'Valokiteshvaraya (x2)

For ten thousands of beings
Namo 'Valokiteshvaraya (x2)
