Spirit Spirit of gentleness
Blow through the wilderness
Calling and free
Spirit Spirit of restlessness
Stir me from placidness
Wind wind on the sea

Verse 1

You moved on the waters
You called to the deep
Then You coaxed up the mountains
From the valleys of sleep
And over the eons
You called to each thing
Wake from your slumbers
And rise on your wings

Verse 2

You swept through the desert
You stung with the sand
And You goaded Your people
With a law and a land
And when they were blinded
With their idols and lies
Then You spoke through Your prophets
To open their eyes

Verse 3

You sang in a stable
You cried from a hill
Then You whispered in silence
When the whole world was still
And down in the city
You called once again
When You blew through Your people
On the rush of the wind

Verse 4

You call from tomorrow
You break ancient schemes
From the bondage of sorrow
The captives dream dreams
Our women see visions
Our men clear their eyes
With bold new decisions
Your people arise
