Words by Alfred Midlane
Music by James McGranahan

Habakkuk 3:2
"O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid:  O LORD, revive thy work
in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy."

          Revive Thy work, O Lord!
          Thy mighty arm make bare;
          Speak with the voice that wakes the dead,
          And make Thy people hear.

            Chorus
            Revive! (Thy work!) revive! (Thy work!)
            And give refreshing show'rs;
            The glory shall be all Thine own;
            The blessing shall be ours.

          Revive Thy work, O Lord!
          Disturb this sleep of death;
          Quicken the smold'ring embers now,
          By Thine almighty breath.

            Chorus
            Revive! (Thy work!) revive! (Thy work!)
            And give refreshing show'rs;
            The glory shall be all Thine own;
            The blessing shall be ours.

          Revive Thy work, O Lord!
          Create soul-thirst for Thee;
          But hung'ring for the bread of life,
          Oh, may our spirits be!

            Chorus
            Revive! (Thy work!) revive! (Thy work!)
            And give refreshing show'rs;
            The glory shall be all Thine own;
            The blessing shall be ours.

          Revive Thy work, O Lord!
          Exalt Thy precious name;
          And, by the Holy Ghost, our love
          For Thee and Thine inflame.

            Chorus
            Revive! (Thy work!) revive! (Thy work!)
            And give refreshing show'rs;
            The glory shall be all Thine own;
            The blessing shall be ours.
