1 O Lord, thy work revive,
In Zion's gloomy hour,
And let our dying graces live
By thy restoring power.
2 Oh, let thy chosen few
Awake to earnest prayer;
Their covenant again renew,
And walk in filial fear.
3 Thy spirit then will speak
Through lips of humble clay,
Till hearts of adamant shall break--
Til rebels shall obey.
4 Now lend thy gracious ear;
Now listen to our cry:
Oh, come, and bring salvation near;
Our souls on thee rely.

It is widely used in America, and is also found in a few English collections, including Reed's Hymn Book and the New Congregational Hymn Book, and sometimes is attributed in error to Hastings. [Rev. F. M. Bird, M.A.]
