Rushing Wind Lyrics - Keith Green

Review The Song (1)



Rushing wind, blow through this temple,

Blowing out the dust within;

Come and breathe your breath upon me:

I've been born again.


Holy Spirit, I surrender; take me where you want to go.

Plant me by your living water,

Plant me deep so I can grow.


Jesus, you’re the one who sets my spirit free;

Use me, Lord; glorify your Holy Name through me.


Separate me from this world, Lord;

Sanctify my life for you.

Daily change me to your image,

Help me bear good fruit.


Ev'ry day you're drawing closer;

Trials come to test my faith.

But when all is said and done, Lord,

sponsored links
You know it's been worth the wait.


Jesus, you’re the one who set my spirit free;

Use me, Lord; glorify your Holy Name through me.


Rushing wind, blow through this temple,

Blowing out the dust within;

Come and breathe your breath upon me,

For I've been born again.

About "Rushing Wind" | Reviewer: Keith "fan", nah, "Jesus" fan ;-) | 2/3/2008

This was the first cut on the 1981 Sparrow title, "The Keith Green Collection." It's a powerful example of Keith's fervent faith, pianistic acumen, and the power of the Lord's Spirit upon Keith's ministry in concert.

The song was recorded live with Keith at the piano. What, no band? For this tune, Keith didn't need one! Forcefully slow but not "dragging", pitched in "C Major", Keith's voice raises (high, of course!) this prayer for the infilling of the Spirit and his own willingness to follow whatever the cost. A classic "Keith" harmonic structure and exquisitely executed scalar runs accompany the tune, which segues into a live version of "You Put This Love in my Heart". Sparrow then cut to the studio version of that tune before the vocal comes in (so, yes, you can get your fill of Bill Maxwell's considerable production abilities as well!)

I had only received the album when my father came to me with the news of Keith's passing ... so the "Collection" quickly became a "collector's item" as we knew there would be no more original albums forthcoming. Fortunately, if you missed that record ;-), you can hear the song on Sparrow's "Keith Green: The Ministry Years", released posthumously in two volumes during 1987-1988.

If any of Keith's family views this, know that we still thank God for Keith's ministry and the LORD is still using Keith's songs for His glory.
