I blogged a week or so ago about the lost gem of Augustus Toplady’s text “Faith Reviving.” I was curious of its availability on any vocal musical recording, so I emailed Bob Kauflin, the Director of Worship Development for Sovereign Grace Ministries, and asked him if he was aware of any. I received a very kind reply from him saying that he was not aware of any CD with this hymn on it and that he wasn’t familiar with this text. I also asked him if he would consider writing a new tune for it and including it on a future Sovereign Grace CD, and he said that he would. He will probably adjust the lyrics a bit as well so that they are more understandable to a modern-day audience. This is exciting news. Keep an eye out for this song on a future Sovereign Grace recording. (Though I’m not a big fan of Sovereign Grace’s musical style, I really appreciate many of the solid texts that they are putting out.)
