Turn Us Again, O God — Don Fortner

(Tune: #33 — Stand Up, and Bless the Lord — SM)

 

1.       Turn us again, O God,

And cause Thy face to shine!

Make all Your anger t’ward us cease, —

For mercy, Lord, we pine!

 

2.       Blest Sun of Righteousness,

With beams of grace, arise!

Dispel the darkness of our minds,

And open, Lord, our eyes.

 

3.       Revive our waning faith,

Our lethargy remove,

Inspire our hearts with love for You,

By Your redeeming love.

 

4.       Convince us of our sin,

And bathe us in Your blood!

Jesus, “The Lord our Righteousness,”

Turn our hearts to our God!

 

5.       Turn us again, O God,

And cause Thy face to shine!

O God pour out Your Spirit, and

Let us no more decline!
