Hymns#E0255 [O Lord, Breathe Thy Spirit on Me]

_1_

O Lord, breathe Thy Spirit on me,

Teach me how to breathe Thee in;

Help me pour into Thy bosom

All my life of self and sin.

I am breathing out my sorrow,

Breathing out my sin;

I am breathing, breathing, breathing,

All Thy fulness in.


_2_

I am breathing out my own life,

That I may be filled with Thine;

Letting go my strength and weakness,

Breathing in Thy life divine.

I am breathing out my sorrow,

Breathing out my sin;

I am breathing, breathing, breathing,

All Thy fulness in.


_3_

Breathing out my sinful nature,

Thou hast borne it all for me;

Breathing in Thy cleansing fulness,

Finding all my life in Thee.

I am breathing out my sorrow,

Breathing out my sin;

I am breathing, breathing, breathing,

All Thy fulness in.


_4_

I am breathing out my sorrow,

On Thy kind and gentle breast;

Breathing in Thy joy and comfort,

Breathing in Thy peace and rest.

I am breathing out my sorrow,

Breathing out my sin;

I am breathing, breathing, breathing,

All Thy fulness in.


_5_

I am breathing out my sickness,

Thou hast borne its burden too;

I am breathing in Thy healing,

Ever promised, ever new.

I am breathing out my sorrow,

Breathing out my sin;

I am breathing, breathing, breathing,

All Thy fulness in.


_6_

I am breathing out my longings

In Thy listening, loving ear;

I am breathing in Thy answers,

Stilling every doubt and fear.

I am breathing out my sorrow,

Breathing out my sin;

I am breathing, breathing, breathing,

All Thy fulness in.


_7_

I am breathing every moment,

Drawing all my life from Thee;

Breath by breath I live upon Thee,

Lord, Thy Spirit breathe in me.

I am breathing out my sorrow,

Breathing out my sin;

I am breathing, breathing, breathing,

All Thy fulness in.
