Breath of God, life bearing wind,
waking matter into birth,
planting promise, prompting hope:
with your life renew the earth.
Breath of God, word bearing wind,
truth-revealer, prophet’s speech,
guide to vistas of the mind:
let your word excite and teach.
Breath of God, fire bearing wind,
source of power, love, and light,
melting fears and joining tongues:
with your fire our hearts ignite.
Breath of God, song bearing wind,
stirring wonder to rejoice,
yearning’s echo, grace’s dance:
let your song give our prayers voice.
