737. Breathe on Me, Breath of God

1 Breathe on me, breath of God.
Fill me with life anew,
that I may love what you so love,
and do what you would do.

2 Breathe on me, breath of God,
until my heart is pure,
until with you, I will one will:
to do and to endure.

3 Breathe on me, breath of God,
my will to yours incline,
till all this selfish part of me
glows with your fire divine.

4 Breathe on me, breath of God,
so shall I never die,
but live with you the perfect life
of your eternity.
