During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

1 O sovereign Lord, enthroned in grace,
Put forth Thy mighty hand;
Let all Thy people seek Thy face,
And nobly take their stand.

Revive us, revive us, O Spirit of power,
May this be the day, and this be the hour;
O help us, O bless us and show us Thy face,
And give us the showers, rich showers of grace.

2 Revive Thy Church, almighty God,
Oh, purge us from all sin;
Honor the Savior’s precious blood,
Now let Thy work begin. [Refrain]

3 Let idols from their thrones be hurled,
Uplift the prophet’s rod;
Have mercy on a wicked world,
Revive Thy Church, O God. [Refrain]

4 Let all now magnify Thy Word,
And seek the Spirit’s breath;
’Tis not by might nor power, Lord,
That souls are saved from death. [Refrain]

5 Lord, give us grace from this blest hour
To watch and work and pray;
Revive Thy Church, Lord, give us power
To win lost souls today. [Refrain]
