1. O Lord, breathe Thy Spirit on me,
      Teach me how to breathe Thee in;
    Help me pour into Thy bosom
      All my life of self and sin.
    • I am breathing out my sorrow,
        Breathing out my sin;
      I am breathing, breathing, breathing,
          All Thy fulness in.
  2. I am breathing out my own life,
      That I may be filled with Thine;
    Letting go my strength and weakness,
      Breathing in Thy life divine.
  3. Breathing out my sinful nature,
      Thou hast borne it all for me;
    Breathing in Thy cleansing fulness,
      Finding all my life in Thee.
  4. I am breathing out my sorrow,
      On Thy kind and gentle breast;
    Breathing in Thy joy and comfort,
      Breathing in Thy peace and rest.
  5. I am breathing out my sickness,
      Thou hast borne its burden too;
    I am breathing in Thy healing,
      Ever promised, ever new.
  6. I am breathing out my longings
      In Thy listening, loving ear;
    I am breathing in Thy answers,
      Stilling every doubt and fear.
  7. I am breathing every moment,
      Drawing all my life from Thee;
    Breath by breath I live upon Thee,
      Lord, Thy Spirit breathe in me.
