A Supplication

Spirit God, Be Our Breath
(More Voices 150)

Spirit God: be our breath be our song.
Blow through us, bringing strength to move on.
Our world seems inward, defensive, withdrawn…
Spirit God, be our song.

Patient God: soothe our pride, calm our fear.
Comfort us. When we know you are near
we grow more certain, our vision is clear.
Patient God, calm our fear.

Spirit God: be our breath, be our song.
Blow through us, bringing strength to move on.
Through change, through challenge,
we’ll greet the new dawn…
Spirit God, be our song.
