Today’s Worship–January 7th, 2012

Greetings Saints!

Today’s Bible Reading & Verse

Job 14-16

“Oh, that You would hide me in the grave,
That You would conceal me until Your wrath is past,
That You would appoint me a set time, and remember me! Job 14:13


Heartache forces us to embrace God out of desperate, urgent need. God is never closer than when your heart is aching. _Joni Eareckson Tada

Today’s Song Story

Breathe on Me, Breath of God

Edwin Hatch, who wrote this hymn, was a great scholar. An esteemed member of the Oxford University faculty, he became widely known for his Brampton Lectures, which were translated into German by the great Adolph von Harnack, a great German scholar. Lectures of that sort tend to be challenging to read –– tough sledding, as they say. But when it came to expressing his faith in ways that would speak to the ordinary person, nobody has done it better than Edwin Hatch did with this hymn, "Breathe on Me, Breath of God."

This hymn is a prayer. The first line of each stanza is "Breathe on Me, Breath of God." That phrase reminds us of the creation in which God "formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being" (Genesis 2:7). It reminds us of Jesus breathing on his disciples and saying to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit" (John 20:22).

We need the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, living within us –– guiding us –– inspiring us –– helping us to live the kind of life that God created us to live.

This hymn prays that God will breathe on us and fill us with life anew, even as God breathed life into Adam. It prays that God will breathe on us to purify our hearts. It prays that God will breathe on us until we are wholly devoted to God. It prays that God will breathe on us so that we might never die. This hymn, then, is a prayer for God’s help in this life and throughout eternity.

1. 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.

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

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

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