|O Breath of life, come
sweeping through us
O Breath of life, come sweeping
Revive thy Church with life and power;
O Breath of life, come, cleanse, renew
And fit thy Church to meet this hour.
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.
O Breath of love, come breathe within
Renewing thought and will and heart:
Come, Love of Christ, afresh to win
Revive thy Church in every part.
Revive us, Lord! Is zeal abating
While harvest fields are vast and
Revive us, Lord, the world is waiting,
Equip thy Church to spread the light.
