Breath of Heaven

“Breath of Heaven” is a Christmas story told from a different perspective. Mary is a young woman in awe of having been chosen to become the mother of Jesus. She shares her human self-doubt and fear. Still, she offers her all, in faith and obedience to the will of God. This beautiful song is Mary's prayer to her unborn child.

The first time I heard this song, I had chills. My eyes welled with tears. So powerful. So personal.
Absorb these lyrics, then listen to Amy Grant's performance at the CMA Country Christmas in 2011.
She is accompanied by her husband, Vince Gill. 



With love to you and your family, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ,
LuAnn




Breath of Heaven

I have traveled many moonless nights,
Cold and weary with a babe inside,
And I wonder what I've done.
Holy father you have come,
And chosen me now to carry your son.

I am waiting in a silent prayer.
I am frightened by the load I bear.
In a world as cold as stone,

Must I walk this path alone?

Be with me now.

Be with me now.

Breath of heaven,
Hold me together,
Be forever near me,

Breath of heaven.

Breath of heaven,

Lighten my darkness,
Pour over me your holiness,
For you are holy.
Breath of heaven.

[ Do you wonder as you watch my face,
If a wiser one should have had my place,
But I offer all I am

For the mercy of your plan.
Help me be strong.
Help me be.
Help me.

Breath of heaven,
Hold me together,
Be forever near me,

Breath of heaven.

Breath of heaven,

Lighten my darkness,
Pour over me your holiness,
For you are holy.
