Lyrics

It Takes My Breath Away

When I think about the manger, Oh.... I'm amazed
That one so high would stoop so low
And take upon himself my shame
And willingly walk this guilty sod, with humility and grace
Love from the face of God, takes my breath away

It takes my breath away
Takes my breath away
Takes my breath away...

When I contemplate the Cross, the pain my Savior bore
He sweat the blood and cried the tears
Gave His life to win the War
He prayed for those drove the nails, the ones He came to save
Love strong enough to rend the veil takes my breath away

It takes my breath away
Takes my breath away
Takes my breath away...

The empty tomb, the delivery room,
For those who claim the Son
Sacrifice and suffering are the currency of love
He said "I go to prepare a place",
As He rose above the fray
Love pure enough to cleanse the world,
Takes my breath away...

It takes my breath away
Takes my breath away
Takes my breath away...
