Petra - Voice In The Wind Lyrics




Words and music by Bob Hartman
Based on John 3:8

Wind may come, wind may go
Where it blows noone knows
Chill the bone, fan the fire
Lead the soul to hearts desire

There's a voice in the wind that calls your name
If you listen you'll never be the same
There's a voice in the wind that points the way
Gently beckons to follow and obey

Spirit comes, spirit goes
Whence it comes noone knows
Giving life, making new
Filling hearts, calling you

Petra Voice In The Wind Comments
  1. CameraMan66

    Such powerful words in this song, my dad use to have this album

  2. N. Wilson

    Sometimes I think they could have been massive in the mainstream, but the world is shallow and empty. Why you lookin for the devil when you oughta be lookin for the lord! Love you Petra and Big Greg X Volz!! John Schlitt is the man too.

  3. Nathan Milliron

    Is it me or is this song directly influenced by "Danse Arabe" (from THE NUTCRACKER)?

  13. Leumas S.

  14. Kell Schwartz

  15. dorthy quest quest

    I'm so excited! Finally I can listen to this album on my phone!! Thank you!!!

  16. BrWilson

    Songs like this represented a great spirituality on the part of Petra and represented a time in Christianity when people believed in a God who was natural...like the wind as opposed to a burdensome call upon our lives.

    Andrew Haxley

    Sons of Abraham RT petra is one of my favorite christian bands along with david meece, white heart and of course idle cure, they are the best christian band ever, and this song is also my favorite, makes me really happy to know that they love god and jesus too and have a positive message about them, im 21 yrs old and im a true born again christian believer and child of god, i love god and jesus so much? Their my best friends, im truely saved by the precious blood of jesus christ which cleanses me from all sin, this is back in the old days when christian bands used to be so amazing and positive and this band was no expectation, i love petra a lot, amen god bless u friend:)

    Loki Steelheart

  17. Felipe Nascimento

    What a album, my God.

    There's a voice in the wind that calls your name, if you listen, you'll never be the same.

  18. Michael McGann

    I came to know Jesus back in 1983.... I have gone astray since then. i can no longer hear that "Voice in the Wind".

    dancer elle

    Neosodon I'm a scientist. I know it's flat nasa is bs and is a god hater. I k now for a fact it is. Lorn towers prove it

    dancer elle

    Neosodon don't u dare say I'm spreading atheism. Christ is my life book a plain flight to South Africa to Australia the u will see your clues. Your the atheist science believer. Your just not smart enough

    James Poff

    Michael McGann nor am I Christian God has always been in you and always will be. Don't short yourself of joy love and peace heaven is not a physical place my friend it is a spiritual state of mind

    Andrew Haxley

    Michael McGann i agree with u friend, i truely know jesus and god because im their child, i also have gone astray because of my sins and inequitys which caused me to be separated from god, i am truely saved by the precious blood of jesus christ which cleanses me from all sin, i love god and jesus so much, their my best friends, and this song reflects my own life and my own experience with god, as a true child of god, i was once an orphan separated from god, i listen to this song and i remember crying so bad that tears fell down my face, its so sad emotional and true at the same time, as a true born again christian and believer, i pray to god to guide me through the rest of this life, i allow his will over my life because i love him a lot, i go through life and this song still reminds me to this day that i am lucky to have a great easy life that god gave me, its a heartbreaking song and i know what my purpose for this life will be, and what god has planned for me to do, but in the meantime i enjoy life and live to its fullest, knowing everyday that god is protecting me and is looking out for me each and everyday from evil and wicked things, i pray that this song will touch many other people out there and that they get to know god and jesus before its too late, god bless you friend and take care, may god continue to bless u:)

    Andrew Haxley

    David Herrera me too friend, ive experienced the same thing too,
    I listen to this song because i love it and the message is true, i am proud to be also truely saved by the precious blood of jesus christ which cleanses me from all sin, im also proud to be a true born again christian believer and child of god,
    I pray to god and talk to him like a dear friend, i also ask him what is my purpose father god on this earth, hes my perfect heavenly father and i love him so much, i love jesus too their my best friends, i always pray and wait for the answer, and god always tells me to wait or not yet, i can hear his gentle voice saying wait my child, i will tell u maybe someday what ur plan is for this life, ive struggled with sin for a while but thanks to his amazing help, i was finally able to overcome it, i trust god and jesus alone for my salvation and this song puts it very well, i love u god and jesus, and will continue to serve and praise ur wonderful name til the day i die, god bless u friend and take care:)

    Andrew Haxley

    Walter David Scott. Amen brother, god bless u friend:)

  21. Kentora Makoto

    The blue and the green--dynamo.   The Spirit lives forever--by it we all live, and move, and have our very being.  I'm confident that this is the message behind this song--my personal favorite since the first time I heart it back in '87

    Andrew Haxley

    Kentora Makoto i agree my friend, im already truely saved by the precious blood of jesus christ which cleanses me from all sin, i love god and jesus, their my best friends, as a child of god, i dont fear death because when i die ill go to heaven and i will be so much happier up there, i love u god and jesus, u are truely wonderful, i cant wait to see you one day in heaven, i love u a lot and care about u, i will see u one day and when my soul leaves my body, ill meet u in the sky, i praise and thank u for my wonderful life my perfect heavenly father and jesus, i love u a lot and dedicate and surrender my whole life to u, im also proud to be a true born again christian and believer, god bless u and take care:)

    Andrew Haxley

    leonardo Xavier de Souza agreed, god bless u friend:)

  26. Gum Nut

    My favourite Christian metal song of the eighties. SandyMc.

  27. Tom Jicha

    Is Petra a Jew for Jesus?

    Kell Schwartz

    I do not understand the question. But to clarify something. Your journey is alone with God to find the truth. No matter what religion. But there will be a time in your life when you need to choose. May your journey bear fruit and open all our eyes to see us as one body. Love conquers all.

  28. William Tyndale

    Sendin this one as a shout out to the unknown souljah creepin this district. I know you were rockin this @ Bob Jones in between ACDC and patrollin rogue spirits in the library.

    Light on Earth

    This comment just MADE my day. LOL

  29. BibleFire

    @WilliamTyndale1 
    hello.
    Smiling eyes sneeze.
    so, my face for many weeks is sliding off my face.  every second of every second, every smaller unit than that.  My only relief is dance.  Talking I still notice it. Walking, eating, eating, eating, I notice it.  & My face is sliding off right now.
    And it was sliding off while I was typing, and it will continue to slide off for the rest of my physical life here on PLANET
    plan it EARTH.  I am foregoing the use of Global, in fact any thing, or any one, that uses Global I'm boycotting as being factual.  Glow Ball/electric planet is merely okey dokey, nthin special.
    ICR and Thunderbolts should clump their catastrophes togethererererer around PELEG.
    Pirate Christianity I know.
    There should be Pirate Christian Schools, not just Private Christian Schools with a Jesuit on the board...if you look at my upbringing with scrutiny, you will notice that there was probably a Jesuit teacher in my life for many years in high school, & it makes me wonder if it wasn't my home room teacher who wore a mustache like hitler, no joke.
    HIs wife taught me calculus at the college level in high school.  & I want'ed to be a monk when I was 20.
    hmmm.
    I gotta quiet us in regards to my statistically fantastic drug run after private Christian school which encouraged me to develop money laundering skills.  Ask Andy Gross.

    William Tyndale

    Interestingly enough, while being the real name for the youtube account tied to the G+ account I am commenting through here and now, this tag (the WilliamTyndale1 you used) is for a G+ account I accidentally made but never log into. Figga dat! lol Good tune

  30. Jason Montgomery

    Since I sing like a girl, always have, I still know every single word of these songs!  Love it!  Takes me back to15yrs old!!

    BibleFire

    we call it Mickey Mouse.  to deepen your voice sing in a Scottish accent!
    I tried it, it works for like 5 extra notes!
    I'm so caught up in this song, I just want to share all the beauty of the Holy Spirit!  despite the flu, the teeth, the snow, the more snow, OH
    MY
    GOD
    this life is so worth living!  helped save  a suicide tonight!
     OH MY GOD is Jesus!
    I can't believe, but I must, so then faith is unhoped for and bostered

  31. Marshall Jobe

    Such an amazing song. Makes my spirit soar and my eyes tear up at the same time. This is how much Jesus loves us.

  35. John Woods

    I am a sinner but may the name of the Lord be always exalted. This song touched my heart in 1984 and still does 30 years later. Praise to you my Lord may the Holy Spirit touch my soul until the day I die and beyond. Thank you Petra for this beautiful song and thank you my Lord for giving it to them...

    Gum Nut

    @John Woods  Me too John, we certainly don't believe in ourselves, but we do believe in the Lord Jesus! Like the thief on the Cross, the hope of grace never dies.

    Tony Sabin

    +John Woods It's okay we are all sinners anyways in HIS eyes but THANKFULLY we are SAVED by GRACE, that GRACE holds us in HIS hands and those hands have holes in them. I'm the one holding the hammer and the nails in my hands falling flat on my face, HE is the ONE who comes behind me and picks me up still clutching the hammer and nails. If not for GRACE, WHO? Could Stand?

    Andrew Haxley

    John Woods me too, im a true born again christian believer and child of god, i love god and jesus so much, their my best friends, this song brings a tear to my eye every time i listen to it, im a sinner too, im not perfect, but i do try to live a holy and sinless life, ive already accepted jesus christ as my lord and savior and im so proud i did because now i am saved by the perfect blood of jesus christ which cleanses me from all sin, this is my favorite album and my favorite band of all time, i love petra a lot, and this song gets me everytime, i live my life to the fullest everyday because i love life and i love gods creation, this song puts into perspective the great relationship i have with the holy spirit whom i love so much too and whos my best friend too, i dont want to sin anymore, plz save me jesus, im ur child, im so sorry for my past sins, plz forgive me, god bless u friend:)

    Andrew Haxley

    Gum Nut yup we sure do, i truely believe in god and jesus because im a child of god, im also a true born again christian and believer and love god and jesus so much, their my best friends, this song not only makes me cry but it sounds wonderful to know that jesus is always there with me, i will never leave him either nor forsake him, because i love him so much, hes a good friend to talk to, if i have a problem on overcoming sin, i come to him and confess and repent of my sins, and he forgives my inequitys, im also truely saved by the precious blood of jesus christ which cleanses me from all sin, god is truely helping me in the process and i thank him each and everyday for helping me, thank you father god and jesus for keeping me alive and well all these wonderful years, til i meet you in heaven one day, i dedicate my whole perfect life to you, god bless u friend:)

    Andrew Haxley

    Tony Sabin exactly friend i agree with you, i feel the same way, im like a sinner nailed to a cross too with the words child of god written on there, and jesus is there with me, my best friend and shepherd, he looks at me in a sad way and says to me truely i tell you andrew, today you will be with me in paradise, me and him bow our heads down and my soul leaves my body, the inequitys and the sins that i have on my cross are many, im also a true believer and a true born again christian and i love god and jesus so much, their my best friends, if i had to lay down my life for jesus i would because i love him so much, i would be beaten and nailed to the cross the same way he was nailed and i would live and die for him because i love him a lot, im truely saved by the precious blood of jesus christ which cleanses me from all sin, i have already surrendered my life to god and jesus and said let your perfect will be done in my life heavenly father instead of my will, thanks and god bless:)

  36. Eddie Guitar

    me gustaba mas el tecladista anterior JOHN SLICK no sonaba tan pop

  37. Eddie Guitar

    me encanta la cancion pero el teclado ese se oye muy pop gracias a Dios que cuando llego john a la banda le bajaron el volumen a ese teclado por eso se oye mas heavy

  38. James Edgar

    "Breathing life, making new, filling hearts, calling you..." Very reassuring words.

    Andrew Haxley

    James Edgar yup it sure is, it definitly speaks the truth about who god is, and one day as a true child of god that is already saved by the blood of jesus if i live to be 85 yrs old and pass away peacefully, i will be able to meet the perfect creator and judge who will judge me for everything i ever did in my life, but also as a true born again christian and believer whos already accepted jesus christ as my lord and savior, i wont be judged harshly but then again u never know, god bless u friend and see u in heaven:)

  39. Bem Querer

    Dios te bendiga UnknownPetraFan! Gracias

    Andrew Haxley

    Daniel Betancourt yes he does and i love u too jesus, ur my best friend, god bless u friend:)

  41. The Drumming Sasquatch

    the keys in this song are sublime. John Lawry is criminally underrated.

    James Edgar

    I couldn't agree more.

    RockOfTruth

    Spankedchicken
    Don't forget Bob Hartman on the guitar. Truly one of the best Christian guitarists​ of all time. He also wrote most if not all of Petra's songs.

    Andrew Haxley

    Spankedchicken this is a good song, i love petra and this song brings me more closer to god, as a true born again christian believer and child of god, i love god and jesus their my best friends, this song draws me more near to my perfect heavenly father whos helping me to overcome sin, god bless u friend and take care:)

    Andrew Haxley

    James Edgar me too, god bless you friend:)

    Geordie Guenther

    This was not John Lawry on the keyboards. It was Carl Marsh, a session musician. And he truly owned this record.

  42. Edward Dean

    I saw this concert at Jacksonville auditorium I think it was 1984, we had front row seats but never sat down, it was awesome, Greg has a great voice

    Andrew Haxley

    Edward Dean yes he does, god bless greg x volz and this awesome band, im proud to be a child of god and love god and jesus so much, their my best friends:) amen, god bless u friend:)

  43. Fortaker

    This song is one of those rare songs for me that start out "not bad", and after a while become "pretty good", until finally I suddenly realize I love it so much that I can't stop listening to it. This is my personal favorite Petra song of all time, just above "Stand in the Gap". Such AWESOME music. There will never be another Petra.

    Andrew Haxley

    Fortaker i love this song too so much, its my favorite in this album too, i love god and jesus so much, their my best friends, im proud to be called a child of god a true believer and a true born again christian, this song makes me cry everytime, because of my strong faith and hope in god and jesus, if u can hear this father god, i love u and cant wait to be in heaven with u one day, im truely saved by the blood of jesus christ which cleanses me from all sin, i will praise u and serve your beautiful and wonderful name forever on this earth, i have nothing to fear because my perfect heavenly father is always with me, my life will always be perfect and i will enjoy life all the more, im 21 yrs old and also as a true follower of jesus christ, this song gets me everytime because its true, the emotion i feel when i think about my hero and my perfect friend and lord and savior jesus christ being crucified where golgotha is, im forced to watch this happen to him and i cry everytime i see him crucified, this song brings so many tears to my eyes, its true, my friends, god is helping me as his child to get through the hurts of this life, i know i may not be perfect, but there is victory in christ jesus name, thank u jesus for dying for my sins, i was incredibly sad listening to this song, i know god has prepared a great future for me and a great plan for my life, plz let ur will be done in my life instead of my will, god bless u friend:)

  44. Loki Steelheart

    I always listen to this song when im feeling down...Its got a soothing affect...on my soul

    Andrew Haxley

    Loki Steelheart me too, i listen to it because i love it and it makes my soul calm too, i love u god and jesus, ur amazing, god bless u friend:)

    Loki Steelheart

    Man time sure flies

  45. Thor Odinson

    And this is, stand-alone, arch-typical 80s rock.

  46. Kimono Gryphon

    Such an INCREDIBLE band.
    I was lucky to see them 2xs at Creation festival in Pa,
    but it was sadly after Greg left the band.
    This was the BEST album Petra had done, and after 20 years it is stil speaking to our hearts.
    May anyone that listens to these words be led to the saving grace that is Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Father.

    Kimmyskunk

    Andrew Haxley

    Kimono Skunk amen brother, god bless u friend, may god bless all of us as his children and keep us safe until the second coming, im proud to be a child of god believer and born again christian, love u god and jesus amen, thank u for saving me, ur my best friends:)

  47. Jon Sullivan

    So much talent for one band. God blessed this band, there is no denying it!

    There's a voice in the wind... calling out our names to obey Him and go to all the nations, no matter the price we have to pay, telling that Jesus lives and He alone is the Savior and Lord !

    Andrew Haxley
