Breath Lord 

1) Lord - Breathe into my lungs your breath of life 
Remove from them the gasping of strife 
Your fresh clean air is like the wind 
Out with the dark, stale air of sin. 

Chorus: Oh Lord - Find me as I seek you 
Oh Lord - Forgiving me when I do 
Oh Blessed Lord, Oh Blessed Lord 
Take me into your heart 
That we may never part 
Oh Blessed Lord, Oh Blessed Lord 
Hold me up when I am down 
Fill me up before I drown 
Oh Blessed Lord 
Your grace is all I need. 

2) Lord - Place your hands upon my heart 
Keep them there to give me a start 
Gently and tenderly fill me with the beat 
From the top of my head down to my feet. 

Chorus:

3) Lord - Fill my sight, use my eyes 
Cast off the dark we all despise 
The brilliance of your love divine 
Will chase the evil and let me shine 

Chorus:

4) Lord - Let me hear the angels sing 
The bells of my church, let them ring 
Drown out the voices calling me to the ledge 
Teasing and taunting to step off the edge. 

Chorus:

5) Lord - Fill my nostrils with new life's smell 
It's pure and good, this I can tell 
Take away the pungent smell of death 
Aching to steal away my breath. 

Chorus:

6) Lord - Take me up in your sweet arms 
Keep me from life's wicked harm 
I pray to you and to our Father 
I'll try to be good and be no bother. 

Chorus:

7) Lord - Show me the way to spread your word 
Like the sheep of the meadow, I will herd 
Them to your open arms of grace 
The path to Heaven, that wonderful place 

Chorus:


Amen
