Riding the Wind

Song History

I believe every boy is born with a need for adventure…but not many boys these days have a dad who knows how to help the boy learn to be a man…to walk in his true destiny. This song came as I thought about how my dad set me up for adventure – by teaching me to ride when I was about four years old…and then getting me my very own horse! When I was a boy, I read many books about adventure, from Jack London’s Call of the Wild to all the Marguerite Henry books about horses, a couple of my favorites being Misty of Chincoteague and King of the Wind. As I was growing up, I had the privilege of having several horses, my favorite being named Sugar. Sugar and I were pretty inseparable – especially during the summer – when we would ride literally all over the countryside, exploring and playing cowboys and Indians! Life was very difficult for me – growing up was hard. For several reasons, I did not learn how to be a man until later in life…and I want other boys to know better than I how to make the transition from boy to man. As you listen to this song, let it spur you ahead to look at what kind of man you would like to become.

Verse

Little boy lost

Little boy alone

Little boy gone far from home

Little boy journey

Just what will he see?

And when he finally gets there what will he be?

 

Chorus

He’s becoming the man he always dreamed he would be!

No longer bound by the world, his eyes are opened to see!

To see and believe his destiny!

This adventure is calling to the boy, “Come and see!”

Come fight the battles of men

That set the little boy free to see and believe his destiny!

And he goes riding the wind in the name of the King!

It will take him as far as he can dream!

And he goes riding the wind and the wind calls his name,  “Son, come be free!”

Once he goes riding the wind the boy is no longer seen

For he’s becoming the man he’s called to be!

Son, come riding the wind!

Riding the wind of destiny!

 

Verse Two

Little boy captured

Prisoner of the world

Deep into the darkness he is hurled

Fighting for his honor

Fighting for his life

Fighting for the Kingdom through the night!

 

Chorus

He’s becoming the man he always dreamed he would be!

No longer bound by the world, his eyes are opened to see!

To see and believe his destiny!

This adventure is calling to the boy, “Come and see!”

Come fight the battles of men

That set the little boy free to see and believe his destiny!

And he goes riding the wind in the name of the King!

It will take him as far as he can dream!

And he goes riding the wind and the wind calls his name,  “Son, come be free!”

Once he goes riding the wind the boy is no longer seen

For he’s becoming the man he’s called to be!

Son, come riding the wind!

Riding the wind of destiny!

Warrior

Song History

Just as every by longs for adventure, hemorrhoids I believe every boy sees himself as somewhat of a warrior. We can either war for what is right or we can fight for selfish gain. A true warrior is always willing to lay down his life for those and that which he loves. When I was a boy, it seemed I got teased a lot and bullied a lot and had to fight a lot. Not fun…but rather than allowing those trials to beat me down, I chose to allow them to make me stronger by having a Kingdom point of view. Just because something bad happens to me does not mean I have to live with a defeated attitude. I learned to see even those times of being bullied as a way of training myself to live my life. A real man – a warrior – does not fight to serve himself. He fights to defend those who cannot defend themselves. He fights for what is right and honorable and always seeks restoration rather than destruction. As you listen to this song, imagine what you would want others to see your warrior heart as – one who fights for what is right or one who fights to serve only himself? Learn to be a man of honor, son.

Verse

He’s a warrior in the Kingdom!

That’s what they told him since he was a boy!

He’s a warrior in the Kingdom!

And that to lay down his life would be his honor and joy!

His honor and joy!

He’s a warrior in the Kingdom!

And now the darkness is come but will he know what to do?

He’s a warrior in the Kingdom!

Though he may be just a boy, the man inside’s coming through!

Heart of a man breaking through!

 

And now the fight has come to him!

It’s up to him to sink or swim!

And now the fight has come to him!

But does he know that deep inside that he is destined to win?

 

Chorus

Ride! Boy, ride into the fight!

Ride! Boy, ride with all your might!

Ride! Boy, ride with the heart of a warrior!

Ride! Boy, ride for what is right!

Ride! Boy, laying down your life!

Ride! Boy, ride with the heart of a warrior!

 

Verse

He’s a warrior in the Kingdom!

And now his friend is in need!

In need of one to defend!

He’s a warrior in the Kingdom!

And what is love if not laying down one’s life for a friend?

His life for a friend!

He’s a warrior in the Kingdom!

And now he takes up his sword not knowing what he might see!

He’s a warrior in the Kingdom!

And whether knowing or not, he rides into destiny!

Right into his destiny!

 

And now the fight has come to him!

It’s up to him to sink or swim!

And now the fight has come to him!

But does he know that deep inside that he is destined to win?

 

Chorus

Ride! Boy, ride into the fight!

Ride! Boy, ride with all your might!

Ride! Boy, ride with the heart of a warrior!

Ride! Boy, ride for what is right!

Ride! Boy, laying down your life!

Ride! Boy, ride with the heart of a warrior!

 

Bridge

He’d go through darkness!

He’d go through flame!

He knows that his friend would do the same!

Though others see him as just a boy

He rides with honor!

He rides with joy for his friend!

For the Kingdom!

In the name of the King and for his friend!

 

Chorus

Ride! Boy, ride into the fight!

Ride! Boy, ride with all your might!

Ride! Boy, ride with the heart of a warrior!

Ride! Boy, ride for what is right!

Ride! Boy, laying down your life!

Ride! Boy, ride with the heart of a warrior!
