GREAT QUOTES on THE WELSH REVIVAL

"The impulse appears to have been sporadic and spontaneous. In 
remote country hamlets, in mining villages buried in distant valleys, 
one man or one woman would have it laid upon his or her soul to 
pray that the Holy Spirit might be poured out... There does not 
seem to have been any organized effort anywhere." 
- Evan Roberts, The Story of the Welsh Revival by Eyewitnesses 

"The story of the very first outbreak of the Revival traces it to the 
trembling utterance of a poor Welsh girl, who, at a meeting in a 
Cardigan village, was the first to rise and testify. "If no one else 
will, then I must say that I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart." -
Evan Roberts, The Story of the Welsh Revival by Eyewitnesses 

"There are no advertisements, no brass bands, no posters, no huge tents." 
- Evan Roberts, The Story of the Welsh Revival by Eyewitnesses 

"There was absolutely nothing wild, violent, hysterical, unless it 
be hysterical for the laboring breast to heave with sobbing that 
cannot be repressed, and the throat to choke with emotion as a 
sense of the awful horror and shame of a wasted life suddenly 
bursts upon the soul." 
- Evan Roberts, The Story of the Welsh Revival by Eyewitnesses 

"In this village I attended three meetings on Sunday two and a 
half hours in the morning, two and a half hours in the afternoon, 
and two hours at night... At all these meetings the same kind of 
thing went on, the same kind of congregations assembled, the 
same strained, intense emotion was manifest. Aisles were 
crowded. Pulpit stairs were packed and, mirabile dictu! two-thirds 
of the congregation were men and at least one-half young men." 
- Evan Roberts, The Story of the Welsh Revival by Eyewitnesses 

"The revival is borne along upon billowing waves of sacred song. 
It is the singing, not the preaching, that is the instrument which 
is most efficacious in striking the hearts of men." 
- Evan Roberts, The Story of the Welsh Revival by Eyewitnesses 

"Whence has it come? All over Wales... a praying remnant have 
been agonizing before God about the state of the beloved land, 
and it is through that the answer of fire has come." 
- Evan Roberts, The Story of the Welsh Revival by Eyewitnesses
