Lyrics

Lord, Thou hast called Thy grace to mind,
Thou hast reversed our heavy doom;
So God forgave when Israel sinned,
And brought His wandering captives home.

Thou hast begun to set us free,
And made Thy fiercest wrath abate;
Now let our hearts be turned to Thee,
And Thy salvation be complete.

Revive our dying graces, Lord,
And let Thy saints in Thee rejoice;
Make known Thy truth, fulfill Thy word;
We wait for praise to tune our voice.

We wait to hear what God will say;
He’ll speak, and give His people peace;
But let them run no more astray,
Lest His returning wrath increase.
