First Breath In The Morning

Description
This is a song I wrote in 1991 as a love song for my wife.

Recently, as I was listening to the song, I thought about how it could also be a song about my relationship with God and Jesus Christ, if I made some changes in the lyrics.

So I decided to do a completely new version of the song dedicated to my Lord Jesus. I hope this song brings a blessing to all who listen to it. May it bring you closer to Christ and the holy spirit, as it has me.

God Bless you all

Ed

VERSE 1
A E
When troubled times come on me - when I feel like giving in.
D A E
To the hell and fire around me - to the world and all its sin
A E
To the liars and the cheaters - to the temptations within
D A E A
I Pray to my Lord Jesus - and I am whole again

CHORUS
A C#-m
He's my first breath in the morning - my last prayer late at night.
F#-m D E
He's my strength and my power - through the struggles and the fight
A C#-m
He's the reason I keep living - He's the one who makes it right
F#-m D E A
He's my Lord and my Savior - God's Son Jesus Christ.

BRIDGE
F#-m E
I don't need to worry - I don't need to fret
F#-m E E / D#
About what's happened in the past or - hasn't happened yet
D A
There's never gonna be a day - through all eternity
B E E7
That He won't be there loving me - and setting my soul free.

Final CHORUS
A C#-m
He's my first breath in the morning - my last prayer late at night.
F#-m D E
He's my strength and my power - through the struggles and the fight
A C#-m
He's the reason I keep living - He's the one who makes it right
F#-m D E A
He's my Lord and my Savior - God's Son Jesus Christ.

First Breath in the Morning
The love of my life, sloparts, wrote this to honor his Lord Jesus Christ. He is in Heaven now jamming with the best of musicians who have passed before him. I know he loved music and is out of pain. I want everyone who has posted things about Ed how much it means to me. Thank you all.
