Mary's Song... 

Imagine being Mary over 2,000 years ago. Imagine having been told by an angel that you would carry a child of God. Imagine escaping from King Herold when he decreed that all male children, under the age of 2 should be killed and having to escape to another land.

Breath of Heaven (Mary's Song)
sung by Amy Grant

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

*This song was signed by a friend of mine, right after I graduated from high school, at a Christmas pagaent as a surprise. It was just truly beautiful!
