Come to the water

There's a war going on just across the street
There's a rage that's burning to an angry beat
I can feel the thirst but there's no relief
We need a river

There's a sound in the distance like a thunder cloud
Waiting for the rain while the sun beats down
Can you feel it rising from the underground?
We need a river

Oh, let justice roll like rivers
Oh, let mercy flow with love, love

Come to the water, come to the water of life
It will never run dry
Come to the water, run to the water of life
It will never run dry

There's a cry from a child in the factory
There's a prayer for the prisoners of poverty
Save us from the greed and the apathy
We need a river

There's a hope like a flood running down our street
We're an army of peacemakers on our feet
Take us to the place where love and mercy meet
There is a river

Oh, let justice roll like rivers
Oh, let mercy flow with love, love

Come to the water, come to the water of life
It will never run dry
Come to the water, run to the water of life
It will never run dry

Father forgive us for the preaching the gospel
That we don't always show
While millions all over this planet are dying of spiritual thirst
We're greedy and selfish in our ways

But Father I heard You say that if my people
Who are called by Your name
Will humble themselves and pray
You will hear our prayers and give us water that will satisfy, sing

Come to the water, come to the water of life
It will never run dry
Come to the water, run to the water of life
It will never run dry

Come to the water, come to the water of life
It will never run dry
Come to the water, run to the water of life
It will never run dry

It will never run dry
We're thirsty Father, come on
