Hold My Breath

Written by Corbin York

 

[Intro]

 

[Verse 1]

Lamp unto my feet, lighting the path ahead

I fear to sleep, that I might miss what You’ve said

I’m awake, and yet i’m dreaming of You

What candle can a dream hold 

To simply being with You

 

[Chorus]

I hold my breath

And plunge into the depths

All of my cares float

All of my cares float away

And the weight of Your glory

It draws me down to You

All of my cares float

And I hold my breath

 

[Post Chorus]

Ooh, Ooh 

Ooh, Ooh 


[Verse 2]

How can I find 

Answers to my questions

And lose the idol of 

Being in control

The road to Your feet

Is the one I wanna take

To simply be with You

[Chorus 2]

I hold my breath

And plunge into the depths

All of my cares float

All of my cares float away

And the weight of Your glory

It draws me down to You

And all of my cares float

And I hold my breath

 

[Post Chorus]

Ooh, Ooh 

Ooh, Ooh 

Ooh, Ooh 

Ooh, Ooh 

 

[Outro]

And I hold my breath 

Hold My Breath (Acoustic)
