Over the hilltops, down from the skies,
Coming from glory—lift up your eyes!
While we are watching, and while we pray,
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.

As He has promised, so shall it be:
Blessings from glory on you and me—
Waters abundant, floods to o’erflow.
A mighty revival is coming, I know.

Refrain

Prophets have told it: in the last days
Hearts shall be filled with glorious praise;
Our sons and daughters, both shall proclaim
The news of redemption thro’ His great name.

Refrain

Tarry for power—this is our need.
Patiently labor, sowing the seed.
Soon comes the harvest—glorious day!
A mighty revival is sweeping this way.
