Break like a wave
Flow like a river
Flood like a rain, down upon this place
Rise like a mountain
Blow like the wind
Roar like a thunder in the heart of every man

We ask not for the wealth of a treasure
For that's much less than you are
We seek a blessing beyond all measure
Your glory revealed in our hearts

Break like a wave
Flow like a river Flook like a rain, down upon this place
Rise like a mountain
Blow like the wind
Roar like a thinder in the heart of every man

Teach us to turn from our wordly affections
replace every sinful desire
Display your gloryto our imperfection
And cleanse us with holy fire, your fire

Break like a wave
Flow like a river
Flood like a rain, down upon this place
Rise like a mountain
Blow like the wind
Roar like a thunder in the heart of every man

Come thou fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing thy praise
Streams of mercy never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise

Break like a wave
Flow like a river
Flood like a rain, down upon this place
Rise like a mountain
Blow like the wind
Roar like a thunder in the heart of every man
