Revive thy people, O Lord

Representative Text

1 Revive Thy people, O Lord!
Thy mighty arm make bare;
Speak with the voice that wakes the dead,
And make Th people hear.

Revie! revive!
And give refreshing show’rs;
The glory shall be all Thine own;
The blessing shall be ours.

2 Revive Thy people, O Lord!
Disturb this sleep of death;
Quicken the smould’ring embers now
By Thine Almighty breath. [Chorus]

3 Revive Thy people, O Lord!
Create soul-thirst for Thee;
But hung’ring for the bread of life,
Oh, may our spirits be. [Chorus]

4 Revive Thy people, O Lord!
Exalt Thy precious name;
And, by the Holy Ghost, our love
For Thee and Tine inflame. [Chorus]

Midlane, Albert, was born at Newport, Isle of Wight, Jan. 23, 1825, and was engaged in business in that town for many years. To his Sunday school teacher he ascribes the honour of prompting him to poetic efforts: and the same teacher did much to shape his early life. His first printed hymn, "Hark! in the presence of our God," was written in September, 1842, at Carisbrooke Castle, and printed in the Youth’s Magazine in November of the same year. Since then he has written over 300, and of these a large proportion are in common use. They appeared in magazines and small mission hymn-books, including:— (1) The Youth's Magazine; (2) The British Messenger; (3) The London Messenger; (4) Trotter's Evangelical Hymn Book, 1860; (5) The Ambassador… Go to person page >
