Revive Us Again (Hymn)

Revive Us Again
William Mackay (1863)

We praise Thee, O God!
For the Son of Thy love,
For Jesus Who died,
And is now gone above.

Refrain
Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Hallelujah! Amen.
Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Revive us again.

We praise Thee, O God!
For Thy Spirit of light,
Who hath shown us our Savior,
And scattered our night.

Refrain

All glory and praise
To the Lamb that was slain,
Who hath borne all our sins,
And hath cleansed every stain.

Refrain

All glory and praise
To the God of all grace,
Who hast brought us, and sought us,
And guided our ways.

Refrain

Revive us again;
Fill each heart with Thy love;
May each soul be rekindled
With fire from above.

Refrain

This hymn on the subject of revival is interesting.  The refrain asks the Lord to “Revive us again,” but every verse is about praising the Lord for all that He has done for us and given to us.  I think that there is some wisdom in that.  Revival starts with thankfulness in our hearts.  When we start praising the Lord for everything He has done for us, we will start to see revival in our hearts.  And revival in our hearts will soon start to spread to others.  Then we can and will begin to see true revival!

    • I know that I need to be more thankful in my life, and I know that, when i am more thankful, it really does effect my heart and it helps me to have a little revival in my own life! I’m glad it helped you!
