When the conviction as to its mental process reaches its crisis, the person, through weakness, is unable to sit or stand, and either kneels or lies down. A great number of convicted persons in this town and neighborhood, and now I believe in all directions in the north where the Revival prevails, are “smitten down”… They fall with a deep groan… with the intensely earnest plea, “Lord Jesus, have mercy on my soul!”

– The Irish Revival, 1859 –
