Holy Spirit........Breathe on Me

Below is a hymn that we sing from time to time at our church.  I had not heard it until just a few years ago, but I absolutely love it. To me the hymn writer has addressed every aspect of life in this one song.  If you don't know the tune of it, go to YouTube and check it out.  It's a beautifully written and the music is very fluid.

Holy Spirit, breathe on me,
until my heart is clean;
let sunshine fill its inmost part,
with not a cloud between. 


Breathe on me, breathe on me
Holy Spirit, breathe on me;
Take Thou my heart, cleanse every part,
Holy Spirit breathe on me.
 

Holy Spirit, breathe on me,
my stubborn will subdue;
teach me in words of living flame
what Christ would have me do. 


Breathe on me, breathe on me
Holy Spirit, breathe on me;
Take Thou my heart, cleanse every part,
Holy Spirit breathe on me.


Holy Spirit, breathe on me,
fill me with pow'r divine;
kindle a flame of love and zeal
within this heart of mine. 


Breathe on me, breathe on me
Holy Spirit, breathe on me;
Take Thou my heart, cleanse every part,
Holy Spirit breathe on me. 


Holy Spirit, breathe on me,
till I am all Thine own,
until my will is lost in Thine,
to live for Thee alone. 


Breathe on me, breathe on me
Holy Spirit, breathe on me;
Take Thou my heart, cleanse every part,
Holy Spirit breathe on me. 


This is my prayer for today, tomorrow, and the next weeks and months.  "My stubborn will subdue, fill me with power divine, kindle a flame of love and zeal within this heart of mine, till I am all thine own, and until my will is lost in thine."
