Give Us A Greater Hunger

Give us a greater hunger, Lord, than we have ever known. 
Help us wait in one accord until Your pow'r is shown.
Keep us Your children on our knees, beseeching You with mighty pleas
Till floods of blessing like the seas sweep over all Your own.

Give us a sense of urgency that will not be denied.
Give such desire Your work to see, till ease we cast aside.
Give us soul-hunger and soul-thirst, till hearts with longing almost burst,
Till we could wish ourselves accursed if souls but reach Your side.

Lord, now begin Your mighty work; make bare Your holy arm.
O God, forbid that we should shirk, or to this age conform!
Reveal Your Spirit's mighty pow'r; oh, come upon Your church this hour!
By Your own working, Lord, empow'r, till Satan's forts we storm.

Help each of us to do our part; O Lord, may we not fail. 
Give clearest guidance to each heart, till highest mounts we scale.
Use us however You may choose; we would no burden, Lord, refuse;
But get us, Lord, where You can use and mightily prevail.

Oh, send the promised Holy Ghost upon us as we kneel.
We need His holy working most, till men conviction feel.
Lord, this is still the day of grace; have mercy on our dying race.
Revival send to every place; Your miracle reveal. 

(Duewel, Wesley. 1995. Revival Fire, p360)
