There is that old river
With my house atop the hill
Everyday, I could hear the wind
With a deep, loud shrill.
Morning by morning, I walk to the river
I watch the grass blow wild
The birds chirp, and the squirrels scramble
Happiness fills my heart, I feel like a Child.
I smile along with the sun,
And I dance like the grass.
I run with the squirrels
And I reach the river, alas.
I marvel at God's beauty
As I read his loving word
I smiled up at the sky
And my heart jumped and stirred.
I remembered when I was baptized
It was in that old river
When I died and rose again
The thought gave me a shiver.
It then, started to rain.
“You have blessed my life Lord,
My life as been fulfilled with great things
Without you, my life wouldn’t have been a reward.”
