#170: O Breath of Life

Standard

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

1

O Breath of Life, come sweeping thru us,

Revive Thy church with life and pow’r;

O Breath of Life, come, cleanse, renew us,

And fit Thy Church to meet this hour.

2

O Wind of God, come bend us, break us,

Till humbly we confess our need;

Then in Thy tenderness remake us,

Revive, restore — for this we plead.

3

O breath of Love, come breathe within us,

Renewing tho’t and will and heart;

Come, Love of Christ, afresh to win us,

Revive Thy Church in ev’ry part.

4

O Heart of Christ, once broken for us,

‘Tis there we find our strength and rest;

Our broken  contrite hearts no solace,

And let Thy waiting Church be blest.

5

Revive us, Lord! Is zeal abating

While harvest frields are vast and hite;

Revive us, Lord — the world is waiting!

Equip Thy Church to spread the light.
