Representative Text

1 For a Holy Ghost revival, blessed Lord, we pray,
Send the Pentecostal blessing in our hearts today;
Old-time Holy Ghost religion in the old-time way;
Send a Holy Ghost revival, Lord.

Refrain:
Send a Holy Ghost revival, Lord,
May the Spirit on us be outpoured;
Send a Holy Ghost revival, Lord,
And begin it in my heart.

2 May the church on earth be quickened and new life receive,
May lost sinners be awakened and in Christ believe;
More of power and of blessing than we can conceive;
Send a Holy Ghost revival, Lord. [Refrain]

3 Send a great world-wide revival, may the people say
That the mighty God of Pentecost still lives today,
Still convicting and converting in the old-time way;
Send a Holy Ghost revival, Lord. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
