O Breath of Life

Mary J. Hammond
[Key: A]

Verse 1
O Breath of Life,
Come sweeping through us
Revive Thy Church with life and power;
O Breath of Life,
Come, cleanse, renew us,
And fit Thy Church to meet this hour

Verse 2
O Wind of God, come bend us, break us
‘Till humbly we confess our need;
Then in Thy tenderness remake us,
Revive, restore, for this we plead.

Verse 3
O Breath of Love, come breathe within us,
Renewing thought and will and heart;
Come, Love of Christ, afresh to win us,
Revive Thy Church in every part.

Verse 4
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.

Verse 5
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.
