Healing Rain Special Edition [edit]
by Michael W. Smith | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: October 26, 2004
 

Known for his prolific songwriting and a driving passion to see lives changed, Michael W. Smith stands as a pillar in the Christian community and beyond. With a catalog full of impactful worship and pop music, Michael could rest on his reputation, but instead he strives to keep making music that is relevant to the human experience and God's love for us. He writes music that meets us where we are and ushers us into the healing presence of God.

This is the mission behind Michael's highly-anticipated new album, "Healing Rain". With poignant lyrics, moving musical expression, and a sound that seems fresh, yet familiar, Michael delivers an album that perfectly blends his pop sensibilities with the worship experience that has endeared him to so many. Listeners will hear what is closest to his heart and hopefully will let it impact their lives. "Worship is a lifestyle," says Michael. "Embrace God fully and let him embrace you. Don't be afraid to be washed in heaven's rain."

*This special edition (released from the Family Christian Stores) includes an acoustic version of Healing Rain.

awesome! :D | Posted November 29, 2011

Healing Rain came out about the time i discovered Michael W. Smith, plus it was also given to me by a dear friend who only a couple years later died of cancer. She'd loved the song Healing Rain, but GOD's rain hadn't healed her like we'd all prayed and hoped. Her passing was saddening, however, that following week both her daughter, and granddaughter decided to be baptized and make that outward commitment of faith, so her death had a purpose. I think of her fondly when listening to this album..

Originally the song Healing Rain was going to be called Healing Train, with the idea of a train going around delivering aid and medical supplies etc, to people in need, and you can still hear a little of that aspect throughout the song. It was changed however, to depict a Divine source of healing that only GOD can bring. That slight change is what makes this album even better.

My favorite song on this album is definitely Here I Am, and it was the first song i ever heard that truly inspired me to live out my faith, and boldly proclaim His Word. I've never been the same since hearing it.

Some of my other favorite include, the title track Healing Rain, Live Forever, Can't Wait Any Longer, and Bridge Over Troubled Water. :D

Somehow i actually didn't know this album existed until when a friend of mine made a cd for me, and it had an acoustic version of Healing Rain, that i'd never heard before on it. After some searching on Amazon, i located this 'Special Edition' that included the ellusive acoustic version.. ;)
