  2. 2. <ul><li>Breathe on me, breath of God </li></ul><ul><li>Fill me with life anew </li></ul><ul><li>That I may love all that you love </li></ul><ul><li>And do what you would do. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>One: Protect me, God, for I have taken refuge in you </li></ul><ul><li>All: You are my God and Maker; what gifts I have all come from you. </li></ul><ul><li>One: I take delight in all who trust in you, who have made your good their every gain, their livelihood. </li></ul><ul><li>All: But those who sport with other gods – the ones they own – will only multiply their troubles here. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>One: I will not offer myself or sacrifice to these, nor take their empty names upon my lips. </li></ul><ul><li>All: God, you are for me all that I truly need and all that is good. </li></ul><ul><li>One: I raise the cup of life you give, and drink </li></ul><ul><li>All: May you hold my life in yours, as I hold you. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Breathe on me, breath of God </li></ul><ul><li>Till I am wholly thine </li></ul><ul><li>Until this earthly part of me </li></ul><ul><li>Glows with thy fire divine. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>One: Inside the boundaries of my life there is a land so broad, so good. I never earned it, nor was it ever ‘mine’. </li></ul><ul><li>All: It was sent as a gift, inherited from you. </li></ul><ul><li>One: My spirit is filled with you, my heart is glad, my soul is ever satisfied. </li></ul><ul><li>All: My body rests along the way in peace. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>One: And when it comes, you will not abandon me in death, nor allow your beloved ones to vanish and be no more. </li></ul><ul><li>All: You lead and guide along a path called Life </li></ul><ul><li>One: and there your presence is the source of joy. </li></ul><ul><li>All: For from your hands there flows a never-ending stream of bliss. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Breathe on me, breath of God </li></ul><ul><li>So shall I never die </li></ul><ul><li>But live with thee the perfect life </li></ul><ul><li>Of thine eternity. </li></ul>
