Revive Me

I was reading Psalm 85 and was struck by the beauty of the words.  I could not stop thinking about this psalm.  The words stayed with me for days resulting in the lyrics below.  I hear them in my mind sung to music, but since I cannot write music you’ll have to imagine a melody 🙂

Revive Us

You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.

You turned from your hot anger.  You withdrew your wrath.

Will you do it again in me?

Love and faithfulness merge in You.

Righteousness and peace embrace.

Your truth springs from the ground.

Your righteousness looks down from the sky.

Restore us again, O God our Savior.

Revive us again, that we may rejoice.

Show us unfailing love, O Lord our God.

Grant us your salvation.

You give goodness and beauty; bounty and blessing

yielding a harvest on land and in hearts.

Deliverance is close to the people who fear you.

Salvation is near to those who revere you.

Rejoicing will sound in our hearts.

Restore us again, O God our Savior.

Revive us again, that we may rejoice.

Show us unfailing love, O Lord our God.

Grant us your salvation.
