1 Thy breath, O Lamb, as rushing wind
Descendeth from above
With tongue of fire to extend
Through vessels washed in blood.
2 As water rains o’er barren earth,
Its visage to reclaim,
So words of life in man return
To manifest Thy name.
3 That in our heart this Trinity
Of water, blood and breath,
Might testify a mystery
To souls undone by death.
4 That in Thee is eternal life
Thou givest all who come
By simple faith, and through Thee find
The promised Three in One.
5 ’Tis of this treasure love is sown
Whose leaves in me unfurl;
A witness so the lost might know
God’s mercy for this world.
6 Lo, God’s right hand through nature frail
Doth tend benighted ground.
Its light and life will victory hail
By fruit and golden crowns.
