john20.22WED.001

HYMN DAY! The gift of the Holy Spirit! An indwelling of the Lord! What a marvelous gift. Let this hymn—“Breathe on Me, Breath of God” by Edwin Hatch–be your prayer today.

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.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with Thee I will one will,
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly Thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with Thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity.
