Version:

We're longing for Your presence (Men - women echo)
We're waiting on Your promise
That You will flood the nation
With mercy and with justice
We've tasted of Your goodness
We've waded in Your river
Yet still the streets are deserts
And men cry out in hunger
Let sinners find forgiveness
The lonely find a family
Cause lips that mock and curse You
To sing of Your salvation

(All)
Open the heavens and come down
Come in Your glory and Your power
Send Your revival rain
Replenish this land again
Open the heavens and come down
Come down


We want a way of living (Men - women echo)
That ushers in Your kingdom
Faith, purity and passion
And love without condition
Come shake the ground on which we stand
Till all we need is found in You
Then pour the fire into our hearts
To do the work that You would do

(All)
Open the heavens and come down
Come in Your glory and Your power
Send Your revival rain
Replenish this heart again
Open the heavens and come down
Come down
