Representative Text

1 Breathe on us, O Holy Spirit,
As we meet with one accord;
We are waiting for Thy coming,
Come, according to Thy word.

Chorus:
Breathe on us, breathe on us,
We the promised blessing claim;
Cleanse and fill us, Holy Spirit,
This we plead in Jesus’ name.

2 Breathe on us, O Holy Spirit,
As Thy altar we surround;
Fill us with Thy pow’r and blessing,
place our feet on higher ground. [Chorus]

3 Breathe on us, O Holy Spirit,
We believe Thy promise true;
We are longing for Thy fullness,
Quickly come, our souls renew. [Chorus]

4 Breathe on us, O Holy Spirit,
Even as at Pentecost;
We will wait the promis’d blessing,
Then go froth to save the lost. [Chorus]

5 Breathe on us, O Holy Spirit,
We believe that Thou dost come;
Thou our souls art sweetly filling,
Self to Thee has given room [Chorus]
