The song begins as a simple ballad, accompanied by sparse piano and acoustic guitar, before building into an arena-worthy refrain. “God of Revival” was penned by Brian and fellow singer/songwriter Phil Wickham. Incidentally, the duo also co-wrote Wickham’s Dove Award-winning song, “Living Hope.”

“ ‘God of Revival’ is one of my very favorite songs that I’ve ever been a part of. When Brian started singing this chorus melody during a soundcheck for a worship night we were leading together, I knew there was something special there,” Wickham recalls. “Some songs feel like a chase, others feel like a gift. This song is a gift. What a prayer to be prayed for this world right now.”

“As a community, we are experiencing an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, igniting fresh hunger in each of us to go after more of God no matter the cost,” Brian says. “We have reached a turning point from which we have resolved no matter what happens around us—we serve an amazing God. Revival is here and now.”
