God Breathed

In the beginning was God,
Maker of heaven and earth,
In His likeness He made,
Man from dust and clay.

Something precious began that day,
Gift of life He gave…

God breathed,
God breathed,
In His love He breathed,
Something precious began that day,
When God breathed.

The fall of man in shame,
But God’s plan would redeem,
This Messiah, conceived,
Came for all who believe.

Precious Savior born that day,
Gift of life He gave…

God breathed,
God breathed,
In His love He breathed,
Precious Savior born that day,
When God breathed.

Then on the cross,
You bore God’s wrath,
And You took our sins away.
(repeat)

But You rose from the grave,
Gift of life You gave.
(repeat)

God breathed,
God breathed,
In His love He breathed,
Precious Savior rose that day,
When God breathed.

He gave a Helper to guide the way,
Holy Spirit come we pray,
God breathe…
