First Soprano:
O diviner Air,
Thro' the heat, the drouth, the dust, the glare,
Far from out the west in shadowing showers,
Over all the meadows baked and bare,
Making fresh and fair
All the bowers and the flowers,
Fainting flowers, faded bowers,
Over all this weary world of ours,
Breathe, breathe, breathe, diviner Air!

Second Soprano:
O diviner light,
Thro' the cloud that roofs our noon and night,
Thro' the blotting mist, the blinding showers,
Far from out a sky for ever bright,
Over all the woodland's flooded bowers,
Over all the meadows drowning flowers,
Over all this ruined world of ours,

First Soprano:Second Soprano:
O diviner Air,
Thro' the heat, the drouth, the dust, the glare,
Far from out the west in shadowing showers,
Over all the meadows baked and bare,
Breathe, diviner Air!
Breathe, diviner Air!
Over all this weary world of ours,
Breathe, diviner Air! diviner Air!
Over all this weary world of ours,
Breathe, diviner Air! diviner Air!
O, O diviner light,
Thro' the cloud that roofs our noon and night,
Thro' the blotting mist, the blinding showers,
Far from out a sky for ever bright,
Break, diviner light!
Break, diviner light!
Over all this ruined world of ours,
Break, diviner light! diviner light!
Over all this ruined world of ours,
Break, diviner light! diviner light!
Breathe,
Break,
O diviner Air!
O diviner Air!
O diviner light!
O diviner light!
