92. O Breath of Life

1 O Breath of Life, come sweeping through us,
Revive Thy church with life and pow'r;
O Breath of life, come, cleanse, renew us,
And fit Thy church to meet this hour.

2 O Wind of God, come bend us, break us,
Till humbly we confess our need;
Then in Thy tenderness remake us,
Revive, restore, for this we plead.

3 O Breath of love, come breathe within us,
Renewing thought and will and heart;
Come, Love of Christ, afresh to win us,
Revive Thy Church in every part.

4 O Heart of Christ, once broken for us,
'Tis there we find our strength and rest;
Our broken contrite hearts now solace,
And letThy waiting Church be blest.

5 Revive us, Lord! Is zeal abating
While harvest fields are vast and white?
Revive us, Lord, the world is waiting,
Equip Thy church to spread the light.

Amen.
