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.

Revive Thy Church, al­migh­ty God,
Oh, purge us from all sin;
Honor the Sav­ior’s precious blood,
Now let Thy work begin.


Let idols from their thrones be hurled,
Uplift the prophet’s rod;
Have mercy on a wicked world,
Revive Thy Church, O God.


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.


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.
