Revival







Revival

Father Donald says the accident invovled two vehicles. One vehicle was identified as Jerry's pick-up.

The other vehicle is Charlie's SUV.

Ruth is trembling in my arms as we hear the news together.

Jenny was killed at the scene. Charlie is in a coma in the intensive care unit. Neither was wearing a safety belt.

Jerry's pick-up is stuck in a culvert. He left the accident and can't be found.

I turn the music off, turn on the lights and close the bar. Millie agrees to lock up for me and I drive Ruth to the emergency ward.

I ponder the remnants of Jenny's life.

So young and alive only moments ago.

Jenny Anything

Oh Lord, send us the blessings of revival,
Spread Your heavenly Word across this land
Almighty redemption of woman and man
Divine repentance of lost souls...

Oh, Lord, send us a great revival,
Stronger, deeper than we’ve known in years
Start with me Lord, dry all my tears
Proclaim revival of these lost souls

Charlie Traveling to Canaan, traveling homeward tonight
At the Jordan, I trust in God and wade inside
With the cleansing waters my faith is fully revealed
It is His will, revival is mine

Jenny Amid the chaos swirling through my mind
Adrift upon the nomadic dunes of time
Shifting sands hide the last milepost of my life
If it's His will, revival is mine

JerryOh Lord, send us the blessings of revival,
Spread Your heavenly Word across this land
Almighty revival of woman and man
Divine repentance of lost souls...

Oh, Lord, send us a great revival,
Stronger, deeper than we’ve known in years
Start with me Lord, dry all my tears
Proclaim revival of these lost souls

Jerry Sleeping off the madness of my inebriated mind
Complete the circle of my disordered life
“My pick-up knows it’s way,” so often I would say
“When it’s His will, the time is mine”

And in the middle of this lonely, storming night
Flying through windshields in one blinding flash of light
They never closed their eyes, wish I could just close mine
It was His will, but the choice was mine

Jerry Oh Lord, send us the blessings of revival,
Spread Your heavenly Word across this land
Almighty revival of woman and man
Divine repentance of lost souls...

Oh, Lord, send us a great revival,
Stronger, deeper than we’ve known in years
Start with me Lord, dry all my tears
Proclaim revival of these lost souls
