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,

Till I am wholly Thine,

Until this earthly part of me

Glows with Thy fire divine.


My life is an instant, a fleeting hour.

My life is a moment which swiftly escapes me.

O my God, you know that on earth

I have only today to love you.


Breathe on me, Breath of God,

So shall I never die,

But live with Thee the perfect life

Of Thine eternity.

TRENTHAM (Robert Jackson, 1888), arr. Lowell Prescott
Text: Edwin Hatch, 1878 (stanzas 1, 2, 4); St. Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897) (stanza 3)
