revive your Church with life and pow'r;
O Breath of Life, come cleanse, renew us,
and fit your Church to meet this hour.
2 O Breath of Love, come breathe within us,
renewing thought and will and heart;
come, love of Christ, afresh to win us,
revive your Church in ev'ry part!
3 O Wind of God, come bend us, break us,
till humbly we confess our need;
then in your tenderness remake us,
revive, restore - for this we plead.
4 Revive us, Lord; is zeal abating
while harvest fields are vast and white?
Revive us, Lord, the world is waiting -
equip thy Church to spread the light.
