Old Dan Drifter loved his life,
It’s freedom to come and go.
He never regretted being alone,
Not even without a wife.
He’d lived so long all by himself,
It seemed the way to be.
He’s free to ride the rivers flow,
To listen to it’s dreams.
Old Dan loved to see the stars,
That shown bright in the sky.
He let his face bend towards their light,
And imagined he had died.
What a way to enter in,
He thought the river cried.
You see, he knew the light had come,
From the great God from above.
His heart was pumping blood throughout,
Through a body made from love.
It flushed his flesh, and made him smile,
Dear God I praise your name.
He knew the blood that flowed within,
Was God’s creation in a frame.
Ah yes, My Lord, it will be nice,
When your loving face I see.
Until that day, I’ll rest myself.
On this river where I’m free.
My troubles come, my troubles go,
I know that you are there.
To wash away the trials that come,
That could paralyze with fear.
I recognize this rivers flow,
As a path to your great love.
I feel it’s gently, flow beneath,
It reflects your smile above.
Thank you God for creating this,
And all the others things.
That remind us of how great you are,
I watch the birds spread wings.
They see the river from on high,
They too, know you are great,
I wait to see the special time,
You know, the appointed date.
The time that I shall see you Lord,
When we are face to face.
Ah yes, I’m sure the river’s there.
All lined in shimmering lace.
