O Breath of Life
SATB and keyboard instrument.
Pentecost revivalist text by Bessie Porter Head. Lyrical and contemporary.
O breath of life, come sweeping through us
Invest in us new life and power
O breath of life, come cleanse, renew us,
Fit your Church to meet this hour.
O wind of God, come bend us, break us
Now humbly we confess our need
Then in your tenderness remake us
Revive, restore us, this we plead.
O breath of Love, come breathe within us,
Changing thought and will and heart
Come love of Christ afresh to win us,
Revive your Church in every part.
O Heart of Christ, once broken for us
There we find our strength and rest
Our broken contrite heart snow solace
Let your waiting church be blessed.
Revive us, Lord! Is zeal abating?
The harvest fields are vast and ripe
Revive us, Lord, the world is waiting
Send your church to spread the light.
