#164: Breathe on Me, Breath of God

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Breathe on me, Breath of God,

Fill me with life anew,

That I may love what Thou dost love

And do what Thou wouldst do.

2

Breathe of me, Breath of God,

Until my heart is pure,

Until with Thee I  will one will —

To do and to endure.

3

Breathe on me, Breath of God,

Till I am wholly Thine,

Till all this earthly part of me

Glows with Thy fire divine.

4

Breathe on me, Breath of God,

So shall I never die,

But live with Thee the perfect life

Of Thine eternity.
