When He Breathes

Soft, still, the silence heaves
I inhale, the Spirit breathes;
Flowing, growing Christ bestowing
Life and strength surpassing knowing.

Scented, soothing, respiration
Taking in His inspiration;
Filling, feeling Christ exalted
Love and Grace supremely vaulted.

Sure, secure the Spirit wind
Where flows the Sovereign;
God revealing Christ resplendent
Hope and purpose codependent.

When He breathes upon the morn
Hope has dawned and life is born;
He my all in all shall be
From now unto eternity.

By Tom Valles

Job 33:4 “The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.”

Ooh beautiful work! I just love the alliteration and rhymes in this poem. The sound makes a softer, more vibrant picture. Nice.

A beatiful piece indeed; loved the message, the flow and its softness - gentle as the Presence of God Himself; marvelously written! --Joe
