Refresh our lives, hymn — Sam Goodman, UK

Tune: Was lebet was schwebet, O worship the Lord in the beauty of Holiness

Refresh our lives bring us back to this Holy place
Where we feel held in the love that you show
Let mercy flow, hold us tenderly in your grace
Build up your church let our love for you grow

Restore in our lives that great spark that you gave to us
Relight the fire that once burned in our hearts
Challenge us daily to trust you to strengthen us
Use us to serve, let your miracles start

Revive us with water that won’t make us thirst again
Deepen our longing to seek for the truth
Kindle our yearning to put your way first again
Give us the courage to stand up for you

Redeem your people and gather the wanderers
Comfort the mourners, replenish our love
Bring us your hope, only you can deliver us
Guide us with patience to wait on your call

Rejoice with the spirit, the sanctuary fills with praise
Come here with joy, let God’s name be proclaimed
Let love rebound from songs and psalms that we raise
Hold in our hearts the full awe of God’s name
