Breathe upon us, Holy Spirit
if you do not hear the tune, click here.
Breathe upon us, Holy Spirit,
as adoringly we bow
at these altars, pure and sacred,
paying thee our solemn vow.
All our feeble graces quicken
with the streams of thy sweet grace,
and make glorious with thy presence
this thy holy dwelling place.
Thou art pure and thou art holy;
Jesus, make us more like thee.
Thou art meek and thou art lowly;
so may we thy children be.
Shed abroad thy love within us,
fill our souls with light divine.
Holy Spirit, seal, anoint us,
and our earthliness refine.
