O Lord of life, breathe on us now

O Lord of life, breathe on us now.
  And move within us while we pray:
The spring of our new life art Thou,
  The very light of our new day.
O strangely art Thou with us, Lord,
  Neither in height nor depth to seek;
In nearness shall Thy voice be heard:
  Spirit to spirit Thou dost speak.
Thou art our Advocate on high:
  He is our Advocate within;
O plead the truth, and make reply
  To every argument of sin.
But ah, this faithless heart of mine!
  The way I know, I know my guide;
Forgive me, O my Friend divine,
  That I so often turn aside.
Be with me when no other friend
  The myst’ry of my heart can share:
And be Thou known, when fears transcend.
  By Thy best name of Comforter.
