Breathe on Me, Breath of God
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 on 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.
