Breathe On Me

Breathe On Me


‘Breathe on me’ was written in June 2009. I was sitting at the piano one day and praying for a friend who was very ill. A number of months later, at the age of 29, my friend lost his life. I knew the family well and grieved with them 10 years before when my friend and their other son lost his life in a car accident. My friend’s experience was traumatic but I watched the real beauty of relationship with God unfold as he came to terms with, and joyfully expected, meeting Jesus long before he imagined he would. In journeying this and previous painful experiences I wanted to express my commitment to God. I want to be the kind of person who has His praise on my lips no matter what I face; even in writing this I sense the incredible power in those words. I’ve always wanted to write songs that help give words of worship to those who are broken. I guess I was simply asking God to come in, dig around and draw out the praise that He is worthy of.
