The music of this week, Breathe on me, Breath of God by Edwin Hatch (Music by: Robert Jackson), is a prayer song and it is published in 277 hymnals. This hymn is uniquely powerful as it can be used to invite God’s Spirit into a prepared heart. The lyrics of this hymn seemingly indicate a deep desire for God, and to the Holy Spirit for purification. This hymn is best fit for Pentecostal Services and it should be sung with all sincerity and slowly enough so that one could ponder on the lyrics.
1. Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what thou dost love,
And do what thou wouldst do.
2. Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with thee I will one will,
To do and to endure.
3. Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly thine,
Till all this earthly part of me
Glows with thy fire divine.
4. Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with thee the perfect life
Of thine eternity.
