Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
O for a breeze of heav'nly love
To waft my soul away
To that celestial world above,
Where pleasures ne'er decay.
Eternal Spirit, deign to be
My pilot here below,
To steer thro' life's tempestuous sea,
Where stormy winds do blow.

O FOR a breeze of heav'nly love,, Stanzas 1 & 2
