Poetry of Repentance and Revival

Eric Schumacher and I went to church together in Louisville while we were both students at SBTS, and he is one of the foremost theological poets of our day. Eric now pastors in Iowa, and he often writes poems that serve exceedingly well as hymns. He sets the meter so that the poetry fits many well-known hymn tunes.

Check out his latest hymn, Come Now, O Lord, Your Church Revive! May the Lord give us the ability to lament our sin, and may he answer the prayers of this poem.
