>Breath of Heaven

>I wanted to share another of Amy Grant’s Christmas songs – Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song). It’s another one with a calming, soothing melody which touches me. And I like the lyrics. Especially because it goes back to what Christmas should be about.

I’m not feeling particularly Christmassy, I think possibly because I have so much on literally right after Christmas (in one case, the day after boxing day) and also because this is the first Christmas since my Gran died and we no longer have any Grandparents to visit. Yes, we do still have some extended family but I don’t believe any plans have been made to see them. So it’s going to be a different Christmas to any I have ever known. We’ve had a Christmas with just the five of us before – when we were in Australia in 1998 – but we had family at the end of the phone and we knew they were waiting for us when we got home. All of our Grandparents are still waiting for us; but not somewhere we can reach them this Christmas. Except for in our prayers.

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 snow
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
Light in 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
Light in my darkness
Pour over me Your holiness
For You are holy

Breath of Heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me

Breath of Heaven
Light in my darkness
Pour over me Your holiness
Breath of Heaven

Breath of Heaven

Breath of Heaven

Breath of Heaven

~Amy Grant
