The “Awakening” movement was a revival that took place amongst Adventism in the late 1950′s and early 1960′s, spearheaded by Robert and John Brinsmead, two brothers from Australia. The church I belong to also began around that time, and for a while was closely associated with the Awakening message. That message re-emphasized the important truths brought out by two Adventist ministers in 1888, E.J. Waggoner and A.T. Jones. It was a revival of that distinctly Adventist gospel message. This is the songbook used by those folk.
There is also a collection of MIDI files with the music of each song. Click here to download that file.
