Wind on the water, in the waves of the sea
you come, like the Spirit, blowing,
lifting and shaping, shifting the sand,
none know your way of going.

Wind of the Spirit springing up in our life,
you come where the storm is swirling,
summoning strength and courage to ride
high where the surf is curling.

Come, Holy Spirit, moving over the deep
where hope in our hearts is dying,
guide us into the harbor of God,
hear us, like seabirds crying.

Come and uplift us to the reaches of change
on tides of your power and passion,
groundswell of goodness, Spirit of God,
seeking our souls’ possession.
