Notes

LORD, REVIVE US is an anonymous American tune first used for the hymn text "Savior, Visit Thy Plantation" by John Newton (PHH 462) in the 1868 Methodist collection The Revivalist, compiled by Joseph Hillman. The tune title derives from Newton's text, which uses the phrase "revive us" five times in its refrain. LORD, REVIVE US seems related to earlier nineteenth-century tunes such as HOLY MANNA (322) and PLEADING SAVIOR (603).

Dale Grotenhuis (PHH 4) harmonized the tune in 1985 for the Psalter Hymnal. In rounded bar form (AABA'), the music is well suited to part singing and also works well in canon (one measure); when singing in canon, do not use the harmony.
