Blowing Wind And Tongues Of Flame

Sam Hargreaves | Bob Hartman
Verse 1
Blowing wind and tongues of flame
And then the spirit came
Blowing wind and tongues of flame
And everything was changed
Gathered in an upstairs room
Were Jesus friends together
But when the wind began to blow
It wasn't just the weather
Chorus 1
God's Holy Spirit filled that place
And tongues of fire too
Appeared on each disciple's head
A sign of something new
Verse 2
For tongues of fire soon turned into
Tongues of every nation
And Jesus' friends could speak them all
Without an education
It was the feast of Pentecost
So Jews from every land
Were gathered in Jerusalem
They didn't understand
Chorus 2
God's Holy Spirit filled that place
And tongues of fire too
Appeared on each disciple's head
A sign of something new
Chorus 3
Blowing wind and tongues of flame
And then the spirit came
Blowing wind and tongues of flame
And everything was changed
Verse 3
These people are from Galilee
But somehow they can speak
To each of us in our own tongues
In latin french and greek
But one man not so courteous
Said This is what I think
They're babbling They make no sense
They've had too much to drink
Verse 4
So Peter stood and told the crowd
These men are sober friends
God promised this It's coming from
The Spirit that he sends
The prophet Joel told us plain
That one day we'd dream dreams
Men and women old and young
That day has come it seems
Chorus 4
For God's own Spirit falls on all
The gift of Jesus Christ
Who came to bring God's truth
And lead us all from dark to light
Chorus 5
But right here in Jerusalem
That man was crucified
You killed the one that God had sent
He Suffered here and died
Chorus 6
So God raised Jesus from the dead
To live and never die
And reign forever on a throne
Seated at God's side
Verse 5
Upset the people cried to Peter
Tell us what to do
Repent and be baptised he said
Receive God's spirit too
So that is what the people did
Three thousand were baptised
And followed Jesus from that day
Reborn renewed alive
Chorus 7
God's Holy Spirit filled that place
And tongues of fire too
Appeared on each disciple's head
A sign of something new
Chorus 8
Blowing wind and tongues of flame
And then the spirit came
Blowing wind and tongues of flame
And everything was changed
