Savior, visit Thy plantation,
Grant us, Lord, a gracious rain,
All will come to desolation
Unless Thou return again.
Lord, revive us! Lord revive us!
All our help must come from Thee.
Keep no longer at a distance,
Shine upon us from on high!
Lest for want of Thy assistance,
Ev'ry plant should droop and die.
