Breathe Upon Me

Blessed Savior, now behold me

Author: William Baugh
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Blesséd Saviour, now behold me
Waiting at thy bleeding feet;
In thy mercy breathe upon me,
Make me for thyself complete.

Refrain:
Breathe upon me, even me,
Make me what I ought to be;
In thy mercy breathe upon me,
Make me for thyself complete.

2 Take my undivided being,
Thou hast bought me with thy blood,
All my sins thou hast forgiven;
Let my future be for God.

3 Should my days be few or many,
Should my strength be great or small,
Be my talents two or fifty,
Jesus, thou shalt have them all.

4 While I live be thou my leader,
When I die be thou my share;
In thy strength I’m bound to conquer
While for thee my cross I bear.
