1 We long to move and breathe in Thee,
Inspired with Thine own breath,
To give Thy life, O Lord, and be
Baptized into Thy death,
Baptized into Thy death.
2 Thy death to sin we die below,
But we shall rise in love;
We here are planted in Thy woe,
But we shall bloom above,
But we shall bloom above.
3 Above we shall Thy glory share,
As we Thy cross have borne;
E’en we shall crowns of honor wear,
When we the thorns have worn,
When we the thorns have worn.
4 Thy crown of thorns is all our boast,
While now we fall before
The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
And tremble, love, adore,
And tremble, love, adore.
