Representative Text

1 Coming now to Thee, O Christ my Lord,
Trusting only in Thy precious Word;
Let my humble prayer to Thee be heard,
And send a great revival in my soul.

Send a great revival in my soul, (In my soul)
Send a great revival in my soul; (In my soul)
Let the Holy Spirit come and take control,
And send a great revival in my soul.

2 Send the Holy Spirit now within,
Burning out the dross and guilt of sin;
Let Thy mighty works of grace begin,
Oh, send a great revival in my soul. [Chorus]

3 Send a great revival, Lord in me,
Help me that I may rejoice in Thee;
Give me strength to win the victory,
And send a great revival in my soul.[Chorus]

4 Help me go for Thee, dear Lord, today,
To some lonely soul that's gone astray;
Help me lead them in the homeward way,
Oh, send a great revival in my soul. [Chorus]
