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,

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.
