Again, ‘Revive Us Again’

The music for this hymn was written in 1815. Here’s Gary Chapman performing it solo, with guitar.

Do we, the American people, need revival?

Are you kidding? When Jesus came to resurrect Lazarus, Martha protested, “Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.” (John 11:390) I don’t know that America is yet entirely dead, spiritually–but certainly she stinketh.

May He who called the dead man out of his grave call us.

  1. Indeed, your observation is right on. However, the cup of iniquity may not be quite full yet. If God would have saved Sodom and Gomorrah for the sake of even 10 righteous, there could still be hope for us, but judgment begins at the house of the Lord… so, seems like the action waits on us, eh?

  2. Indeed, Erlene, and today we have too many lukewarm churches, as well. Every morning when I wake up I wonder how many more days Our Lord will be longsuffering. Fervent repentance and prayer. Revive us again, Lord! Wake up the people, Father, and turn hearts back to You!

  3. Amen. Time to stop the distractions, shut out the “noise” and seek His face.
