Robin Mark: Revival

 … click on the link below for the YouTube track from the album, and soak in Robin’s lyrics written as you listen

I hear the voice of one calling, prepare ye the way of the Lord.

And make His paths straight in the wilderness

And let your light shine in the darkness

And let your rain fall in the desert.

 

As sure as gold is precious and the honey sweet,

So you love this city and you love these streets.

Every child out playing by their own front door

Every baby laying on the bedroom floor.

 

Every dreamer dreaming in her dead-end job

Every driver driving through the rush hour mob

I feel it in my spirit, feel it in my bones

You’re going to send revival, bring them all back home

 

I can hear that thunder in the distance

Like a train on the edge of town

I can feel the brooding of Your Spirit

“Lay your burdens down, Lay your burdens down”.

 

From the Preacher preaching when the well is dry

To the lost soul reaching for a higher high

From the young man working through his hopes and fears

To the widow walking through the veil of tears

 

Every man and woman, every old and young

Every fathers daughter, every mothers son.

I feel it in my spirit, feel it in my bones

You’re going to send revival, bring them all back home

 

I can hear that thunder in the distance

Like a train on the edge of town

I can feel the brooding of Your Spirit

“Lay your burdens down, Lay your burdens down”.

 

Revive us, Revive us,

Revive us with your fire!

At Red Thread Poets, our deep love for Northern Ireland, first showed up in August 2020 as we were doing a countdown to a Zion series launch, and we linked you all to Robin Mark’s Revival. It is here again, as I love it, it points us to Zion, and personally as I saw Robin and his band here in Ontario in Mississauga at a Promise-keepers event in 2004 (ish), they stirred the heavens that night!! Then David Davidson from County Down with his poetry, joined us early in 2021. A few months later Anne Hamilton introduced me to St Patrick’s Breastplate (The Lorica), St Columcille, and Be Thou My Vision all from her explorations in Northern Ireland – See Past Poet Reflections for these works, and their significance  – note that these writings are from the 5th and 8th centuries. 

Red Thread Poets is a place for poets and songwriters who LOVE the Lord. I have had Robin’s CD since that night in Mississauga.

We are passionate to add renowned songwriters to Red Thread Poets, who have ministered to us and inspired us. We hope they will join us in the future - in the meantime here is a taste of their love of Our Triune God, The Creator. And to you dear reader/listener if you are a songwriter, we would like to hear from you, perhaps you will join us in Glorifying God, and we can so honour you.
