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.
