Brings me to tears every single time I hear it. Written from Mary's perspective, many of the lyrics echo the cries of both men and women today. Her prayer, "Breath of heaven, hold me together. Be forever near me, Breath of Heaven." is such a poignant plea to the Holy Spirit.
Don't leave me. I can't do this alone. You are everything I need.
How many times have we been on our knees and uttered this very prayer?
Breath of heaven,
I offer everything I am for the mercy of your Lamb
Help me be strong.
Hold me together.
Be forever near me.
You are the light in my darkness.
Pour over me your holiness.
