    "The Voice that Breathed o'er Eden"
    by John Keble, 1792-1866

    1. The voice that breathed o'er Eden,
    That earliest wedding-day,
    The primal marriage blessing,--
    It hath not passed away.
    Still in the pure espousal
    Of Christian man and maid
    The Triune God is with us,
    The threefold grace is said.

    2. Be present, loving Father,
    To give away this bride
    As Thou gav'st Eve to Adam,
    A helpmeet at his side.
    Be present, Son of Mary,
    To join their loving hands
    As Thou didst bind two natures
    In Thine eternal bands.

    3. Be present, Holiest Spirit,
    To bless them as they kneel,
    As Thou for Christ, the Bridegroom,
    The heavenly Spouse dost seal.
    Oh, spread Thy pure wing o'er them,
    Let no ill power find place
    When onward to Thine altar
    Their hallowed path they trace.

    4. To cast their crowns before Thee
    In humble sacrifice,
    Till to the home of gladness
    With Christ's own Bride they rise.
    To Father, Son, and Spirit,
    Eternal One and Three,
    As was and is forever,
    All praise and glory be.

    Hymn #622
    The Lutheran Hymnal
    Text: Eccl. 4:12
    Author: John Keble, 1857, ab., alt.
    Tune: "Eden"
    1st Published in: Sacred Hymns and Tunes
    Town: Boston, 1880


    There shall be showers of blessing:
    This is the promise of love;
    There shall be seasons refreshing,
    Sent from the Savior above.


    Showers of blessing,
    Showers of blessing we need:
    Mercy drops round us are falling,
    But for the showers we plead.

    There shall be showers of blessing,
    Precious reviving again;
    Over the hills and the valleys,
    Sound of abundance of rain.


    There shall be showers of blessing;
    Send them upon us, O Lord;
    Grant to us now a refreshing,
    Come, and now honor Thy Word.


    There shall be showers of blessing:
    Oh, that today they might fall,
    Now as to God we’re confessing,
    Now as on Jesus we call!


    There shall be showers of blessing,
    If we but trust and obey;
    There shall be seasons refreshing,
    If we let God have His way.

    I was able to do for 1 song. The other song is a bit tuff., chord changes on every beat and difficult to guess the melody of the song out of the 4 parts play. Can you get me any audio file which contains only the melody of the song?

    Progression for 'showers for blessing' is given below. As per ur MIDI file, it is in Bb scale. If you change it to C major, chord positions will be easy on guitar.
