Transform, Revive, Heal

I posted about this hymn last year - and last week, at the Baptist Assembly Meetings in Bournemouth, I was very challenged as the video was shared in one of the sessions. [Even if you are not a churchgoers, I think you will probably recognise the tune if you live in the UK.]
The recent behaviour of so many in public office has sickened me. Words like justice, truth and integrity seem irrelevant to them. This is a prayer for real change in hearts and lives... 

We seek your kingdom throughout every sphere

We long for heaven’s demonstration here

Jesus your light shine bright for all to see

Transform, revive, and heal society 

Before all things, in him were all things made

Inspiring culture, media, and trade

May all our work serve your economy

Transform, revive, and heal society

 Peace, truth, and justice reigning everywhere

With us be present in our public square

Fill all who lead with your integrity

Transform, revive, and heal society 

Forgive us Lord, when we have not engaged

Failing to scribe your heart on history’s page

Make us again what we were made to be

Transform, revive, and heal society

 Faithful to govern ever may we be

Selfless in service, loving constantly

In everything may your authority

Transform, revive, and heal society

  1. Love this and proud to say it is filmed in my home town of Luton

    1. Thank you - I did wonder where it had been filmed!

  2. Love this! "Transform, revive, and heal society." Amen!

  3. I think we could benefit from this song over here, too, and in many other countries in this world!


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
