Breathe on Me, Breath of God

Edwin Hatch
(1835-1889)

…He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Ghost.”
John 20:22 KJV
5Thus says the Lord God to these bones,
“Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live:
6And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you,
and cover you with skin, and put breath in you,
and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord.”
Ezekiel 37:5-6 KJV

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.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with Thee I will one will,
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Blend all my soul with Thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with Thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity.
