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,
Blend all my soul with Thine,
Until 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.
