"Breathe in His Light" Lyrics

Fear/Anxiety Verse:

Sometimes I feel afraid,

Cold, in the dark.

What will tomorrow bring?

Will I be all alone?   

What if I fail?  

What if someone laughs at me?

But then I feel a warming in my heart.                

A gentle voice whispers to me

"Remember, Child,

The One who calmed the wind,

Just as He walked on Galilee."   

                                      

Chorus:  

And I see His face, smiling on me

More bright, than the light of the sun. 

"Peace, be still," He says.

"I'm the Breath and the Light."

I will breathe in the Light of Christ.                                                                    

 

Self-Worth Verse:

Sometimes I hear these words

Loud in my head.                        

I am not good enough.

This thing I have to do

Is much too hard.

I’ll never measure up.

Then quietly, a thought comes to my mind.      

“You can do anything, through Me.

Believe, my Child,

Reach out and take my hand.

I’ll give you strength to do all things.”  

 

Chorus:

And I see His face, smiling on me

More bright, than the light of the sun.

"Peace be still," He says.

"I'm the Breath and the Light."

I will breathe in the Light of Christ.                                   

 

Regret/Repentance Verse:

Sometimes I am ashamed

I cry at night                    

And say a pleading prayer.

Why did I do this thing?

What did I say?

I wish it would disappear.   

Then I recall -- the gift of Jesus Christ,

And how He bled and died for me.

"Come, follow Me,"

I her Him gently say.

"The pain I bore has set you free." 

                             

Chorus: 

And I see His face, smiling on me,

More bright, than the light of the sun.

"Peace be still," He says.

I'm the Breath and the Light."

I will breathe in the Light of Christ.                                    

 

 

Anger Verse:

Sometimes I feel a spark

Ignite inside.

Anger comes suddenly.

I feel my body clench.

My heart is stone.

"Please, sweet Spirit rescue me."

I’ll hold my tongue

And pause enough to see

The Savior as He held His peace.

The one before me

Is a child of God.

I’ll pray for strength on bended knees.

 

Chorus:

And I see His face, smiling on me.

More bright, than the light of the sun.

“Peace be still”, He says.

“I’m the Breath and the Light.”

I will breathe in the Light of Christ. 

 

Temptation Verse:

Sometimes the enemy

Seeketh my soul.

Temptation clouds my view.

Will I say yes to sin?

Will I give in?

There is something I can do.

I’ll steer myself

And I will clear my head.

Picture the Savior in my mind.

The Light of Christ

Will chase the mist away.

I have the strength to do what’s right.

 

Chorus:

And I see His face, smiling on me.

More bright, than the light of the sun.

“Peace be still”, He says.

“I’m the Breath and the Light.”

I will breathe in the Light of Christ. 

 

Forgiveness Verse:

Sometimes I harbor deep

Anger and pain

For one who wounded me.

Why did they do this thing? 

I need to know.

Bitterness is burdening.

But then I hear

The words the Savior said

As he hung upon the cross.

“Forgive them, for

They know not what they do.”

I’ll let His words replace my thoughts.

 

Chorus:

And I see His face, smiling on me.

More bright, than the light of the sun.

“Peace be still”, He says.

“I’m the Breath and the Light.”

I will breathe in the Light of Christ. 

 

 

Pornography Verse:

What if my eyes see things 

They should not see.

In pictures or on the screen?

“Turn now and walk away. 

Do not look back.”

The Holy Spirit speaks to me. 

I’ll listen and

I’ll close my eyes and see 

Jesus’ arms reach out in love. 

Look up, my child,

I’ll fill your mind with light

There is no darkness when you look up.                                                      

 

Chorus:

And I see His face, smiling on me.

More bright, than the light of the sun.

“Peace be still”, He says.

“I’m the Breath and the Light.”

I will breathe in the Light of Christ. 

 

Reprise  (sung in the mind while breathing deep as needed)

I will breathe in His light.

Breathe it in.

Breathe, til it calms my mind.

I will breathe in His light.

Breathe it in.

I will breathe in the Light of Christ.

 

I will breathe in His light.

Breathe it in.

Breathe, til it fills my heart.

I will breathe in His light.

Breathe it in.

I will breathe in the Light of Christ.
