Words and Music by Shannon Cerneka and Orin Johnson
Running hard, we don’t know what we run from
Pushing hard, we don’t know what it leads to
All we know is stormy winds around us blow.
Though we can’t see what the wind is made of
We can see the power of its presence
And this force is more than we can ever hope to know.
Mighty God, driving wind, burning flame, deep within,
Give to us breath of life, help us all be your winds of
Change our hearts, change our minds, into your living signs
Give to us breath of life, help us all be your winds of change.
Is it true that faith can move a mountain?
Is it true that faith can still the waters?
Is it true God sent his holy spirit in the tongues of flame?
Holy Spirit, dwelling now within us,
Fan the flame of faith and make it brighter,
Make it burn so hot that we must always witness to your name.
Veni Sancte Spiritus,
Ven Espiritu Santo,
Holy Spirit come!
Running now but with the wind behind us
Pushing now the spirit here to guide us
Now we know with God that we can always be the winds of change
