A World Revival · 7 March 2015


Praying Hands by Albrecht Dürer
This work is in the public domain.


I wonder what would happen if
   The world had a big revival
If we thought about just pleasing God
   Instead of mere survival
If we cared about our brothers’ souls
   About our sisters’ needs
If we realized God was the One
   Who brings crops when we plant seeds.

I wonder what would happen if
   On Christ the Rock we stood
If we learned to preach the gospel
   In every neighborhood
If we understood the power of
   This great big God we serve
If when we heard the Master’s call to go
   We followed with great verve.

I wonder what would happen if
   We all to self have died
If in all we said and all we did
   God was glorified
If to all we spread the good news
   Without a moment’s hesitation
If we went to every people
   Every tongue and nation.

I wonder what would happen if
   The world had a big revival
If we realized that pleasing God
   Was His plan for our survival
If we understood He calls us all to preach
   To our sister and to our brother
About the Son He sent to say,
   “Love God. And love each other.”
