Breath of Heaven


I have traveled
Many moonless night
Cold and Weary
With a babe inside
And I wonder
What I've done
Holy Father
You have come
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 of 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 your holy Breath of Heaven

Oh Mary,
I just watched this movie
last night. It never fails, every time the 'baby Jesus' is born - I cry. It's beautiful.
Of course, not because of the pain of childbirth or the filthy surroundings, but because of the beauty of God's love. The sheer astonishment of his plan - and the great risk he took to show His love to us. Wow.

Wonderful

This is one of the most beautiful songs of the season. Thank you for sharing!

Have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful and prosperous 2010!

I can't watch this without crying. Well, I can, but it's close.
I need to watch this movie again, Pepper.
