This is a beautiful prayer. It is taken from Midmorning Prayer from the Divine Office for February 4:

Descent of the Holy Spirit - El Greco (Detail)

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love the things you love,
And do what you would do.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with you I have one will,
To live and to endure.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
My soul with grace refine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with your fire divine.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
So I shall never die.
But live with you the perfect life
In your eternity.

This is a really common theme in some of my favorite songs. Shows elements of the descent of the Holy Spirit and the story of Ezekiel in the valley of the dry bones.
