THIRD DAY New Release ‘Revival’ Lyrics: Ain’t gonna find it in a politician… [VIDEO]

Third Day, the Christian-based band that lists its musical influences as U2, Rich Mullins, REM, The Black Crowes, The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Phil Collins released a new song on Friday (4/28), “Revival,” that was recorded this past year at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.

Key lyrics to “Revival” include: Ain’t gonna find it in a politician <> Not from the government or any law <> Can’t get it going by your own religion <> Only by the Spirit and the Word of God <> Come on with me (Full lyrics below).

“We are so thrilled to share with you the first single from those recording sessions – REVIVAL,” states the band on its website. “We hope you will turn it up load and sing along to the lyric video below, and share it with friends!”

Lead singer Mac Powell talks about some of the inspiration he found in “Revival Week,” an annual event held by his childhood church in central Alabama.

“Revival Week required me to do some soul searching and ask myself, ‘Am I really at a place where I’m willing to surrender to what God would ask and have of me? Brothers and sisters, He wants so much more than just a revival week for us, but for every single day of our lives to be one in which we surrender to seek His wisdom and guidance through the Word of God, and celebrate the abundant life and joy that only He can bring,” he stated. “Let’s join together and hope and pray that God would see fit to bring about in every single one of us, revival.”


Anybody here looking for revival
In our own hearts and across the land
Anybody looking for a revival
Lift up your voice and say Amen
Lift up your voice and say Amen

Ain’t gonna find it in a politician
Not from the government or any law
Can’t get it going by your own religion
Only by the Spirit and the Word of God
Come on with me

You can work all you want
But you might not see it
Give all you got
But it can’t be bought
Try everything
But you best believe it’s
Only by the Spirit and the word of God
Only by the Spirit and the word of God

Come on with me

Amen… Holy Ghost revival’s what we’re talking about
Amen… God is gonna move and there ain’t no doubt
