#170: O Breath of Life

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


O Breath of Life, come sweeping thru us,

Revivie Thy church with life and pow’r

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

And fit Thy Church to meet this hour.


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

Till humbly we confess our need;

Thou in Thy tenderness remake us,

Revive, restore — for this we plead.


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.


O Heart of Christ, once broken for us,

‘Tis there we find our strength and rest,

Our broken contrite hearts now solace,

And let Thy waiting Church be blest.


Revive us, Lord! Is zeal abating

While harvest fields are vast and white

Revive us, Lord — The world is waiting!

Equip Thy Church to spread the light.
