O Breathe On Me, O Breath of God







O breathe on me, O breath of God,
fill me with life anew,
that I may love the things you love,
and do what you would do.

O breathe on me, O breath of God,
until my heart is pure;
until my will is one with yours,
to do and to endure.

O breathe on me, O breath of God,
my will to yours incline,
until this selfish part of me
glows with Your fire divine.

O breathe on me, O breath of God,
so I shall never die,
but live with you the perfect life
for all eternity.

Text: Edwin Hatch (1835-1889)
Tune: ST. COLUMBA, CM. Traditional Gaelic folk tune.
