Breath of Heaven  Misc. Gospel

[B(m]I have traveled many moonless nights
[D]Cold and weary with a babe inside
[Bm7]And I w[Em]onder what[G] I've done
[Bm7]Holy Fat[Em]her, you [G]have come
A(no3) G(no3) A(no3) B(m)
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
A(no3) G(no3) A(no3) D2(no3)
Be with me now, be with me now
[D]Breath of heaven, [G]hold me to[D]gether
[G]be for[F#7]ever [Bm]near me
A/g D(no3)
Breath of heaven
[D]Breath of heaven, [G]lighten my [D]darkness
[G]pour over [F#7]me your [Bm]holiness
Asus/e (A)
for you are holy,
[B(m]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
A(no3) G(no3) A(no3) G(no3) A(no3) D2(no3)
Help me be strong, help me be, help me

{ outro: )
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,
[D]Breath[G] of heaven
[D]Breath[G] of heaven
[D]Breath[G] of h[D]eaven

Chords that make sense! (alternative arrangement)
I've searched the internet & it's all a COPYCAT of this FIRST version which DOESN'T work with the song as RECORDED!!!
