SONG OF THE MONTH:Breath of Heaven by Amy Grant

Sometimes this song speaks so clearly to me I can barely breathe. For me there is no other Christmas song which speaks so beautifully about the heart of Mary as Breath of Heaven by Amy Grant.  It relates not only Mary as humble and frightened but also as yearning for the closeness of the Lord.

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
Light up my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For you are holy 
Breath of heaven

This song touches me not because of what it says about Mary but what it says about me.  I too am so often frightened, humbled and in desperate need for the closeness of my Lord and Savior.  Even if you already know the song, take a minute to let this song lead you to the closeness of the Lord this Christmas season.
