Representative Text

1 The Saints have been weeping, praying for years,
For a mighty revival; God bottled their tears,
Now for the reaping, trust and obey,
A mighty revival is sweeping this way.

Refrain:
Sweeping this way,
Yes, sweeping this way,
A mighty revival is sweeping this way;
Keep on believing, trust and obey,
A mighty revival is sweeping this way.

2 The world has been waiting, seeking for light,
For a mighty revival to banish her night;
Rise up O Zion, enter the fray,
A mighty revival is sweeping this way. [Refrain]

3 The lost ones are sinking, dying for love,
For a mighty revival, sent down from above;
Saints, get the vision, work while you may,
A mighty revival is sweeping this way. [Refrain]

4 We’ll toil for the Master, winning lost souls
In a mighty revival God’s Spirit controls;
Win men for Jesus win them today,
A mighty revival is sweeping this way. [Refrain]
