Intro: A, D, A, E
And what is this lightning? And what is this thundering?
And what on earth has happened, that makes angels sing?
In all the confusion, I almost left the sheep,
the town begins to pack, down the path from me.
Another shepherd comes my way, I run to meet him.
He strains to try and catch his breath, he's barely breathin.
D E D
His voice is shaking and fading thin as he starts to speak,
You won't believe what I've seen.
Love is breathing,
E D A
Hope is screaming tonight, In the baby's cry.
I held mercy,
E D E
I saw grace inside, of this newborn's eyes.
And everything we know is about to change,
E D A
He's laying in the stable in a manger, asleep on the hay.
He said go quickly, and I will watch the sheep,
But you have got to witness, all these mysteries.
I ran to the village, and when I reached the streets,
the keeper of the inn began to cry out to me
D E D
Have you heard this news he said, I just don't understand,
If had known that they were coming, I would have made room just for them.
Until you realize in this small town what's happening
you won't believe what I've seen
Chorus (-LAST LINE)
It was quiet at the stable, in the stillness of the night,
My heart was pounding in my chest as I peeked inside.
He's a young carpenter and she was just a little girl,
And terrified, and carrying, the fate of the whole world.
And then she looked me in the eyes, and held her arms out wide,
You won't believe what I see tonight
D A E
Love is breathing (alleluia, alleluia, alleluia)
D A E
Love is breathing (allelluia, alleluia)
love is breathing
