We have traveled, many moonless nights
Cold and weary, with a babe in sight
And I wonder what I've done
Holy Father, you have come and
Chosen my love, to carry your son

I am waiting, in a silent prayer
I am troubled, 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
(Repeat chorus)
Breath of Heaven
Breath of Heaven
Breath of Heaven

    Faith in god's guiding hand. Having the strength and conviction of faith in a miracle beyond explanation. Asking for help and receiving it by believing in something that simply goes beyond all else. Comfort and a reassuring gift of the son of god. Having life breathed into you from that breath of heaven.
