BREATHE IN (HOPE)

Boris

a Ugandan friend says, "No hope is a terrible disease"... St Ignatius suggested we ran towards our doubts... vulnerability is always better than arrogance... every dark situation needs a response... Today was another day when I felt that we all need to breathe hope into a fragile world... These are the lyrics I wrote for a song written with Jonny Fitch... Breathe...

 

Breathe in

Breathe out

Run the other way

From all the doubt

Dark beats the light

We push others away

Light blinds the dark

In a brand new day.

 

We need a breath of hope

In this dying place

In this valley of death

We need a kiss of grace.

 

Breathe out 

Breathe in

Let’s search our souls

And find we are forgiven

Being right’s so wrong

Confession is so wise

Wrongs can lead to right

From sacrifice we rise.

 

We need a breath of hope

In this dying place

In this valley of death

We need a kiss of grace

 

Will I be the dark

Will I be the death

Will I be the kiss

Will I be the breath?
