Are You Longing For Revival?
A few years ago I found myself driving the streets of the Kansas City suburbs. I had just moved there a few months prior. I had stepped out of being in years of vocational church ministry as a youth/worship pastor at a few churches. I had seen so much ugliness within the church. I had been hurt and mistreated by three different senior pastors. I never wanted to go back into church work again.
I was wrestling with pain, resentment, and isolation. I can still remember that day, driving by myself in the suburbs of Kansas City, when all of a sudden I sensed God give me the words: Sounds of Redemption. I began to weep and cry out in my car!
I knew that God was beginning to stir something in me...this longing for revival! He began to stir up a cry and a deep longing for an awakening...in me, in my family, in my community, in my country, and in my world. I wrote a song during that season and I still pray it with a deep longing.
I had the opportunity to get this song recorded with the help of my friends: Sean Hill (producer) and Michael Farren (vocalist). I don’t often promote my own songs on this website, but I really sense that there is someone who needs to hear this song, who needs to sing it over themselves and over their family. I sense that there’s a church that needs to sing it over their congregation and over their city.

Come wash us clean; come break our hearts
We want to see a glimpse of Your glory
Your truth and love will bring us home
We humble ourselves and we cry out
I see the signs of revival coming
I hear the sounds of redemption rising up
Come break the chains and set us free; We cry out for awakening
We’re ready to live in full surrender
Giving up all, seeking Your kingdom
Your people united working as one
Proclaiming Your name all across this land
