The hymn tune CARLISLE is perhaps best known for the lyrics "Breathe on me, breath of God …"

After an 8 bar introduction, the melody "Were you there" is played by the Flugel. Three verses of the tune Carlisle follow - the second one has the melody with the lower pitched instruments and horns. The piece concludes with a short finale.

Words by Edwin Hatch

1 Breathe on me, breath of God: fill me with life anew, that I may love as you have loved and do as you would do.

2 Breathe on me, breath of God, until my heart is pure, until my will is one with yours to do and to endure.

3 Breathe on me, breath of God; fulfil my heart's desire, until this earthly part of me glows with your heavenly fire.

4 Breathe on me, breath of God; so shall I never die, but live with you the perfect life of your eternity.
