Breathe upon me

Full Text

1. Sweetly and softly my Saviour is calling,
Gently in tones sweet and low;
Calming the storms in my inward life beating,
And hushing my soul and its woe.

Then sweetly breathe on thy life,
And quiet all doubting within;
Yes, sweetly breathe on me thy life,
That my soul may be free from all sin.

2. Stronger and stronger my Saviour is holding,
Keeping me close in his arms;
Shielding me safe when the billows are rolling,
And resting my soul from alarms. [Chorus]

3. Deeper and deeper my Saviour is coming
Into my heart every day;
Guarding my footsteps while on this life's journey,
With light from yon heaven's own ray. [Chorus]

4. Daily, yes, daily I'm knowing him better,
Learning, close down at his feet,
'Till peace o'er my soul rushes on like a river,
And hearts in true unison beat. [Chorus]
