Adams, Oleta - Breath Of Heaven Lyrics




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

    I could listen to Oleta Adams all day. Her music can be soothing, profound and really a pleasure to listen to. I used Just Before I Go To Sleep as my song to have my Engagement Ring blessed at a ceremony that I had to bless my Ring and our relationship and our union. Everyone that was there was very moved by the song. What a voice and gift from God to have such a beautiful voice.

  15. Rita Coleman

    Oleta  Adams An Amazing Singer And Song Writer Love Her Voice!!!!!

    She and I are a month apart in age, so when I first heard her at about 29 yrs I fell in love with that gift of song.

  16. Hazel Johnson-mahone

    Just luv Oleta! such a rich, full sound - glory!

  17. Zachary Lavender

    Absolutely beautiful!

  18. enmaxus

    I Iove Oleta but Donna Summer's version is better.

    Gospel Nostalgia

    If you prefer Donna's version, it's ok. I have had heard both versions and prefer this one. It's just a matter of personal preference.

    grand slam

    agreed, this whole cd is outstanding...Always appreciated Oleta..

    Gospel Nostalgia

    @grand slam Oleta Adams, Anita Baker and Crystal Lewis are my all time favorite female voices. I just wish Oleta and Anita did more gospel.  

    Michael Brown

    Her version is much better than that of Amy Grant or Donna Summers. The tone and quality of her voice is superior. I hope I get to see her in concert some day. Truly a remarkable singer, and she plays piano on her songs as well!!

    Gospel Nostalgia

    I agree.

  19. ladyofproverbs31

    Love this song I originally heard by Amy Grant (I Believe) but Oleta did this! Tears in my eyes!

    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

  20. Gospel Nostalgia

    You're welcome Angel.

  21. Lucy Renée

    Thanks for sharing this beauty with us, Gospel Nostalgia! I sincerely appreciate you for taking the time. If this was the only song/video you ever uploaded on YouTube, it would suffice. It is truly a blessing to humanity as are you. Much Love, Angel!

  22. Jacquelyn Wooden

    Wonderful

  23. Gospel Nostalgia

    She is phenomenal. I couldn't imagine her doing anything else. She has a signature voice.

  24. Rita Coleman

    Oleta Is One Of The Best Singer Out There She Is Untouchable Can't To Many Singers Come Close Love Her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. atwdrivenman

    amazing simply and thats all,woah

  26. Gospel Nostalgia

    The low number of views is no reflection on Oleta. Oleta is awesome. Most of my videos have very low views. It is my fault, not Oleta's. Another uploader would have a much higher view count.

    G.T. G 1

    Gospel Nostalgia: Please keep posting. You never know who will come across any song 3/4 in the morning looking for something to calm there weary soul and thoughts. Or just looking and listening...

  27. Sharon Lewis

    This song is so beautiful. It is a shame that this lovely video only got 325 views. Ms Oleta Adams is a truly gifted singer who deserves more acclaim!! She can outsing any pop or R&B singer any day!!

    Arlette McNeill

    Sharon Lewis. It's a shame to mention Pop and R&B in the same breathe [and sentence] ... As Oleta Adams. Sacrilege!!! 🤫

    The latter is on a higher strata than the former two. But I ain't mad at you.

    Blessings in Christ Jesus! 😍

  28. Sharon Lewis

    Oleta is just fantastic. I love this song by her, she sings this so beautifully!!!

  29. willblack169
