We are waiting and watching, dear Savior,
For an old time revival we pray;
Thou who hast all the floods in Thy keeping,
Send a wave of salvation today.

Refrain

Send a wave of salvation, dear Savior,
Over city and country, we pray;
To redeem and restore poor lost sinners;
Send a wave of salvation today.

We are praying for sinners, dear Savior,
And for sheep who have wandered astray;
Nothing, Lord, but Thy pow’r can reclaim them,
Send a wave of salvation today.

Refrain

Many sad hearts are weeping in sorrow,
For the years have been squandered away;
But their tears without Christ will not save them,
Send a wave of salvation today.

Refrain

In that home of the soul we have loved ones,
We’ve been lonely since they went away;
O that all may prepare to rejoin them;
Send a wave of salvation today.

Refrain
