[MIDI]

O 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.

O breathe on me, breath of God
Until my heart is pure;
Until with thee I have one will
To do and to endure.

O breathe on me, breath of God
'Til I am wholly thine;
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with thy fire divine.

O breathe on me, breath of God
So shall I never die;
But live with thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity.
