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]
