Oh Breath of God

April 7, 2021

A poem inspired by Hildegard of Bingen’s quote—I am a feather on the breath of God. Abbey of the Arts: Sacred Time retreat.

Oh breath of God
Breathe into my spirit
O Spirit of God
Cleanse and renew me
As a mother comforts her child
Oh Spirit, hold me in your arms of love
Oh breath of God
Comfort and renew me
Oh breathe of God
Guide me through the valley
May She always show me the way
