The River

The River

There is a river that forever flows
Along its bank the Tree of Life grows
The peaceful shore I'll someday walk
With other members of the Shepherd's flock

(Chorus)
Jump in! Swim around
Don't worry, you won't drown
Go under! Drink your fill
I know, I one day will

Flowing from the Throne of God
Where the feet of angels trod
One day I will join them too
When my work on earth is through

Jump in! Swim around
Don't worry, you won't drown
Go under! Drink your fill
I know, I one day will

This river flows near streets of gold
Away from the loneliness and cold
There in a mansion I'll reside
Staying forever by my Savior's side

Jump in! Swim around
Don't worry, you won't drown
Go under! Drink your fill
I know, I one day will

Jump in! Swim around
Don't worry, you won't drown
Go under! Drink your fill
I know, I one day will


This was written while I was away from my family. I thought I had posted here, but I guess not. I am praying that my wife will put the music to this one soon because it just sings to my heart.

God bless. Happy Independance Day!

In Christ,
Christian

Christian, this is very touching. I see the picture you painted with these words and it is beautiful! Oh, thank you for your kind words on Valley Of Brokenness.I have made Jesus smile today by touching at least one person. Luv-n-Jesus, Anita Johnson

On a hot day like today, your song about The River was refreshing. I know you were referring to the River of Life, but still, it is refreshing to think of jumping in and swimming around. (If only I could swim!)..Great! Love it. Hope your wife will soon set it to music...Helen
