"Breath Of Heaven (mary's Song)" as written by and Amy Grant Chris Eaton....
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

    General Commentamazing song
    "Hold me together
    Be forever near me"

    just an amazing interpretation of Mary's journey, and our need for god to help us.

    My InterpretationPoint of Grace also covered this song, but I can't find a link to follow so I can indicate that.

    But yes, this is a beautiful song. It's about a pregnancy, yet I (a guy) easily see a parallel with my Christian journey.

    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.
