Breath of Heaven

I have travelled many moonless nights,

Cold and weary with a babe inside,

And I wonder what I have 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!

What a pilgrim’s song this is!  I wonder if you know it, or have heard it before.

Can you relate to Mary’s heart here?  I know I certainly am, as I am learning this song today for a Christmas concert!

As a pilgrim, journeying with my Lord, and carrying the Gospel…

Indeed, sometimes I am cold and weary…

And what have I done to receive His mercy…nothing!

Our Holy Father has chosen me to carry and proclaim the Good News of His Son!

Sometimes I do get frightened by the load I bear, even though it is light, because the world still today can be so cold…

There are times when words do not even leave my mouth…sighs pleading for help and strength!

And I am strengthened and know that I do not journey the path alone…

The Breath of Heaven holds me together and is with me forever more…

He lavishing pours out His holiness!  He is so Good!

Perhaps I am not wise by some people’s standards, and I really do have an un-wise past…but I do offer all I am in response to His love.  And I do desire The Breath of Heaven’s plan for my life…

He carries, sustains and comforts me constantly…

There is no life without Him, for He is The Breath of Life!
