Revival Quotes

I try to add revival quotes on an ongoing basis. I am continually reading on the subject and keep notes from the reading. As I find good quotes, I plan to share some of them here. I hope you are encouraged to seek and pray for revival!

“Revival is not some emotion or worked-up excitement; it is rather an invasion from heaven which brings a conscious awareness of God.” Orr, Heart Cry for Revival, p. 48
Lord, I hear of showers of blessing,
thou art scattering full and free;
showers the thirsty land refreshing;
let some drops now fall on me;
even me, even me,
let some drops now fall on me.

Pass me not, O God, my Father,
sinful though my heart may be;
thou mightst leave me, but the rather;
let thy mercy light on me;
even me, even me,
let thy mercy light on me.

Pass me not, O gracious Savior,
let me live and cling to thee;
I am longing for thy favor;
whilst thou'rt calling, O call me;
even me, even me,
whilst thou'rt calling, O call me.

Pass me not, O mighty Spirit!
thou canst make the blind to see;
Witnesser of Jesus' merit,
speak the word of power to me;
even me, even me,
speak the word of power to me.

Have I been in sin long sleeping,
long been slighting, grieving thee?
Has the world my heart been keeping?
O forgive and rescue me;
Even me, even me,
O forgive and rescue me.

Love of God, so pure and changeless,
blood of Christ, so rich and free;
grace of God, so strong and boundless
magnify them all in me;
even me, even me,
magnify them all in me.

Pass me not; but pardon bringing,
bind my heart, O Lord, to thee;
whilst the streams of life are springing,
blessing others, O bless me;
even me, even me,
blessing others, O bless me.

Elizabeth Codner, 1860
