Casting Crowns
Spirit Wind

Op hun eigen website zegt Casting Crowns over dit lied het volgende:

The song came from a sermon by a country preacher who was on fire for God. As he preached his heart out to our little church in Alabama, he recounted the story of Ezekiel and the valley of dry bones. The whole time he preached about Ezekiel shouting down to these dead bones, I realized I was sitting in one of the deadest churches I had ever experienced. It dawned on me that I was watching a genuine man of God preach down to these pews full of dead bones. It saddened me, and my reaction was a prayer of revival that turned into this spare song.You’ll hear the song go from Ezekiel in the first verse to the country preacher in the second verse and finally to a prayer for God to raise his Church again as a mighty army.

Ezekiel stared down into the valley
Filled with dry bones baking in the sun
Remains that used to be a mighty army
To him, it looked like their fighting days were done

But driven by a calling on his life
He spoke God's words, the bones began to shake
He stared wide-eyed as the flesh began to form
And as he prophesied to the wind
The soldiers began to wake

And the Lord sent His wind into the valley
And breathed the breath of life into their souls
And raised them again a mighty army
For soon these arisen warriors will battle again
For they have been filled with the Spirit Wind
Whoa...

A pastor stands before his congregation
Once a mighty army for the Lord
But now he stares into the lifeless eyes
Believers leading carnal lives
He wonders what they're fighting for

But driven by a calling on his life
He spoke God's word like he'd done a hundred times before
But this time he comes broken and weeping
With tears of a broken heart
And he cries out to the Lord

Oh Lord, send Your wind into this valley
And breathe the breath of life into their souls
And raise them again a mighty army
For soon these arisen warriors will battle again
For they have been filled with the Spirit Wind
Whoa...

Holy Spirit, breathe on me
Breathe Your life in me
Holy Spirit, breathe on me
Breathe Your life in me
Holy Spirit, breathe on me
Breathe Your life in me
Holy Spirit, breathe Your life in me

Oh Lord, send Your wind into this valley
And breathe the breath of life into our souls
And raise us again a mighty army
For soon these arisen warriors will battle again
For we have been filled with the Spirit Wind
Whoa...

Oh Lord, we need You now
Breathe Your life into us
Lord, we need You now
Our churches and our families
Oh Lord, we need You now
Breathe life into this dry and weary land
Raise us up again

Holy Spirit, breathe on me
Breathe Your life in me...
