The River

Thereís a river of life
It runs through all time,
A river of love, so wide and deep
And it wonít let me stay
Where I am today.
Itís calling me to leave, itís calling me.

Iím going down to the river.
Iím going down to the river.
Gonna let it take all of me,
Thatís where I need to be,
Iím going down, down, down Ė to the river.

Thereís a rhythm to the flow
And it wonít let me go
Iím floating on faith and sweet peace.
Itís a river of hope,
Like nothing I know.
Itís washing over me, over me.

Iím going down to the river.
Iím going down to the river.
Gonna let it take all of me,
Thatís where I need to be,
Iím going down, down, down Ė to the river.

Gonna jump in the water, dive in the deep,
Gonna let the river carry Ė
Gonna jump in the water, dive in the deep,
Gonna let the river carry me.

Iím going down to the river.
Iím going down to the river.
Gonna let it take all of me,
Thatís where I need to be,
Iím going down, down, down Ė

Iím going down to the river.
Iím going down to the river.
Gonna let it take all of me,
Thatís where I need to be,
Iím going down, down, down Ė to the river.
