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.

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.
Breath of heaven.
Breath of heaven.

    It's meaning to me: god came to mary for her to carry his son, jesus, to carry out his master plan and she asked for his holiness to surround her on her journey.

    Although we are not physically carrying jesus as mary did, we can carry him spiritually and allow his master plan to be fulfilled in our lives. Give your all unto him!!! There will be times during our life's journey that we feel lonely, confused, unworthy, sad, etc... But even in the darkest nights or sunniest days, our heavenly father is there for our own personal "breath of heaven" moments.

    I first heard this song as recorded by vince gill. He changed just a few lyrics, and as i listened to his version i thought the song was from joseph's point of view. So beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. A truly god inspired song to touch our hearts and remind us of the true meaning of christmas.

    God's love is forever and forever. He started out in a manger and ended on a cross to save us all. Now, that is love!!! Praise his name!
