Breath of My Soul

COME, O Creator Spirit blest,
And in our souls take up Thy rest,
Come with Thy grace and Heavenly aid,
And fill the hearts which Thou hast made. 1

Spirit of Christ, breath of my soul, joy of my heart;
It is Your “Divine Wisdom” that I seek.
Help me this day and always to,
Deny myself all that is in me,
That keeps me from You.

Grant me the grace to conquer my pride,
And to be ever mindful of the words that leave my lips.
Spirit of Christ, breath of my soul, joy of my heart;
May I never seek greatness in this world,
But, through holy obedience,
Prefer the role of a servant.

Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow
The Father and the Son to know,
And Thee through endless times confessed
Of both the Eternal Spirit blest. 2
