Revive Thy work, O Lord

Revive Thy work, O Lord!
  Now to Thy saints appear!
Oh, speak with power to every soul,
  And let Thy people hear!
  Revive Thy work, O Lord!
  While here to Thee we bow;
Descend, O gracious Lord, descend!
  Oh, come, and bless us now!
Revive Thy work, O Lord!
  And every soul inspire;
Oh, kindle in each heart, we pray,
  The Pentecostal fire!
Revive Thy work, O Lord!
  Exalt Thy precious name!
And may Thy love in every heart
  Be kindled to a flame!
Revive Thy work, O Lord!
  And bless to all Thy Word!
And may its pure and sacred truth
  In living faith be heard!
Revive Thy work, O Lord!
  And make Thy servants bold;
Convict of sin and work once more
  As in the days of old.
Revive Thy work, O Lord!
  Give Pentecostal showers!
Be Thine the glory, Thine alone!
  The blessing, Lord, be ours!

O God, let it come fast. Drench us with Your Spirit. Let the Pentecost of our time come. Wake up the dead as You did in John 5:25 and Ezekiel 37. Amen Amen

God in His awesomeness has in time past revived His works on His children and He is still in the business of revival, it my prayers that God pass me not when reviving impartation comes down

His word brought us thus far albeit, we've lost out in the course of our daily activities on earth hence, the need for God to revive His work on us. At His revival, every man shall be quickened to fulfil his mission on earth and alas, we shall celebrate with Jesus in Heaven.

The truth is, the revival is a promise that has been hovering around us for sometime now but men would need pray down this rain. Some persons around the world are already experiencing the mercy drops of revival but the showers that would water 'every one grass in the field' is yet to come. Remember, Elijah did not stop praying on mt. Carmel, until the cloud had appeared.

Let's sing it alone side "let it come oh Lord we pray Thee...", while praying it through.

This hymn was actually written by Fanny Crosby based on "Revive Thy Work Dear Lord" #798 by Albert Midlane. Fanny's arrangement and Doane's tune were then applied to Midlane's hymn also, which makes it much more enjoyable.

I love this song. Revive my soul Oh Lord.

O God! When would Thou revive us? My heart yearns for the worship of old when we walked in brokenness with a contrite heart. When sin was unheard of in our midst but love for the brethren. When we yearned for the next fellowship meeting and savoured Your presence. When Your presence filled was not far from us whenever we kneel to pray. When silver and gold, though they matter, never preoccupied us. Revive thy work O Lord and begin from me. Except a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and die, it abides alone. Help me, help me Lord. Yours I am and Yours I will always be. Amen!

Amen Lord.... we are eagerly waiting for the latter rain You promised these last days.

Our being broken and living before the Lord, His being built within us, and the church being the expression of Christ’s Body cannot be faked. People can sense this immediately when they meet with us. Similarly, the condition of our locality cannot be faked. It is cold or hot, poor or rich, in the flesh or in Christ. As soon as people touch us, they will touch the inward reality. Nothing is as real as spiritual matters; they cannot be faked at all.

Some people are in Christ, allowing Him to rule in them and to overflow out of them. They are persons who are broken, restricted, and ruled by the Holy Spirit. When we come into their midst, we are released and freed, regardless of how heavy a burden or how difficult a situation may be pressing upon us. As soon as we enter into a meeting with them, our entire being is released and freed. This is because there is freedom in the fullness of Christ. If the Son of God sets us free, we are free indeed. Of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. If we live in Him and allow His fullness to be expressed, there will be something in us that sets others free.

Church as the Body of Christ, The, Chapter 11, Section 3

May the Lord have mercy on us, revive us, and make us persons who live not by ourselves but by another life which is the processed and consummated Triune God as the life-giving Spirit.
