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.
