The River of Life

Reservoirs of deep sadness
All the hurt and the pain
Welling up from inside you
Tears trickling like rain

Drops of disappointment
Rivers of lonely tears
The pools of deep despair
Gather over the years

The river of life’s waiting
A cleansing stream of change
Waterfalls of joy and love
Will wash away all your pain

You long for inner peace
It’s something you’ve not had
You’re used to the sorrow
Sometimes it’s not so bad

The muddied waters of life
Can be made clear and sweet
The torrents of heartache
Can be a distant memory

The river of life’s waiting
A cleansing stream of change
Waterfalls of joy and love
Will wash away all your pain

A stream of forgiveness
Can flow into your soul
Come to the river of life
Come, be healed and made whole

The river flows from God
The water is crystal clear
It will cleanse all your wounds
And wash away all your tears

The river of life’s waiting
A cleansing stream of change
Waterfalls of joy and love
Will wash away all your pain
