Revive Us Again

Written by Joel on April 14th, 2011

I sang this hymn for the first time about a month ago at St. Luke’s (Favorite Hymns of Praise #268), and when our musicians learned how much I enjoyed it we’ve sung it three more times since then. Below is the best arrangement I could find on YouTube. A note to others: less is more! This hymn just needs a single acoustic instrument to really shine.

I think the refrain would serve as a great Gospel Acclamation.

(Lyrics from CyberHymnal.com)

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
