Breathing Out and Breathing In
by A.B. Simpson (1843-1919)

Jesus, breathe Thy Spirit in me,
Teach me how to breathe Thee in,
Help me pour into Thy bosom
All my life of self and sin.

I am breathing out my own life,
That I may be filled with Thine;
Letting go my strength and weakness,
Breathing in Thy life divine.

Breathing out my sinful nature,
Thou has borne it all for me;
Breathing in Thy cleansing fullness,
Finding all my life in Thee.

I am breathing out my sorrow,
On Thy kind and gentle breast;
Breathing in Thy joy and comfort,
Breathing in They peace and rest.

I am breathing out my longings,
In Thy list’ning loving ear,
I am breathing in Thy answers,
Stilling every doubt and fear.

I am breathing every moment,
Drawing all my life from Thee;
Breath by breath I live upon Thee,
Blessed Spirit, breathe in me.

Lord I want to inhale receiving your truths and promises.
Lord, I exhale and release all the impurities of 
my old sin nature and the lies of satan.
Keep Breathing in Jesus Today!

  1. Wow. That gives me a whole to “take” on breathing. What an amazing poem.

  2. After having broken my neck, and survived without a scratch or paralysis, I found this to be comforting and true as prayer saved me and will continue to save me. My angels were there with me hrough it all and are still here for me during my long recovery. Thank you for this beautiful verse.
