Breathe of Me, Breath of God

arr. Tracey Craig McKibben

The words to Breathe on Me, Breath of God were written by the 19th Century Anglican preacher and scholar, Edwin Hatch (1835-1889).  The message of the hymn is both simple and profound. In his commentary on Hatch's text, the British hymnologist J. R. Watson suggests that the breath of God “brings new life and love, purity and obedience, surrender and inspiration, and finally eternal life, as the hymn moves through various stages of Christian experience and discipline towards a unity with God.”


Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what Thou dost love,
And do what Thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until my will is one with Thine,
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Till I am wholly Thine,
Till all this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with Thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity.

Lead Me, O Lord  

Rob Roy Peery


Lead me, O Lord,

Lead me in thy righteousness,
Make thy way plain before my face.

Lead me, O Lord,

Because of mine enemies,
Make thy way plain before my face.

For it is thou, Lord, thou, Lord only,
That mak'st me dwell in safety.
For it is Thou, Lord, Thou, Lord only,
That mak'st me dwell in safety.

Have mercy, Father,

Mercy upon me.

Thou only mak'st me dwell in peace.

O Worship the King

Kay Hawkes Goodyear


O worship the King, all glorious above!

And gratefully sing His wonderful love!

O tell of His might, O sing of His grace,

Our shield and defender forever be praised!


Thy bountiful care, what tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air; it shines in the light;

It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,

And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.


O worship the King, all glorious above!

And gratefully sing His wonderful love!

O tell of His might, O sing of His grace,

Our shield and defender forever be praised!


Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,

In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail;

Thy mercies, how tender! how firm to the end!

Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!

O worship the King....

1/10/21 Voice, Guitar & Clarinet Response by David Evans and Melissa Snavely. 

Christ, Be Our Light

Bernadette Farrell


Longing for light, we wait in darkness.

Longing for truth, we turn to You.

Make us Your own, Your holy people,

Light for the world to see.


Christ, be our light!

Shine in our hearts.

Shine through the darkness.

Christ, be our light!

Shine in Your church gathered today.


Longing for peace, our world is troubled.

Longing for hope, many despair.

Your word alone has pow'r to save us.

Make us Your living voice. (Refrain)


Many the gifts, many the people,

Many the hearts that yearn to belong.

Let us be servants to one another,

Making Your kingdom come. (Refrain)
