Author: Bessie P. Head Meter: 220.127.116.11 Appears in 43 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 85:6 Lyrics: 1 O Breath of life, come sweeping through us,
revive your church with life and pow'r.
O Breath of Life, come, cleanse, renew us,
and fit your church to meet this hour.
2 O Wind of God, come bend us, break us,
till humbly we confess our need;
then in your 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 your 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 let your 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 your church to spread the light.
