O Breath of life, come sweeping through us,
Revive Your church with life and power;
O Breath of life, come cleanse, renew us,
And fit Your church to meet this hour.
O breath of life, come sweeping through us
O breath of life, come cleanse, renew us
O love of Christ, afresh to win us
fill us with Your holiness
O Wind of God, come bend us, break us,
Till humbly we confess our need;
Then in Thy tenderness remake us,
Revive, restore, for this we plead.
O Breath of love, come breathe within us,
Renewing thought and will and heart;
Come, Love of Christ, afresh to win us,
Revive Your church in every part.
(words by Bessie Head)
These beautiful words resonated with me years ago when I first heard them. The Lord put a “new song” on my heart and I set these lovely words to a new melody and new piano accompaniment. My heart longs for revival- for His Spirit to revive, restore, and renew us. May His breath of life fill us with passion and equip us for His service!
