Mason Jennings – How Deep Is That River lyrics

How deep is that river? How deep is that river?
I don't wanna know where it's coming from
I don't need to know where it's going to
Before I place my trust in You
I just wanna know, how deep?

God said to me what He said to the tree
Grow up towards the light and one day you'll see
My son Jesus, what did He say?
Love the Lord, your God and God will show you the way
Do unto others like you wanna be done
Look deep in your heart and know that we are one

Singing, how deep is that river? How deep is that river?
I don't wanna know how fast it flows
I don't need to know if it's safe to swim
Before I put my trust in Him
I just wanna know, how deep?

God came down in the cool of the day
Stirred up the waters and began to play
Before He knew it, man was on the land
With a thought in his head, and a gun in his hand
God saw that man was just a little too rough
So He gave him a heart and filled it up with love

Singing, how deep is that river? How deep is that river? Yes
I don't wanna know if it has a name
I don't need to know how to cross it yet
Before I get my spirit wet
I just wanna know, how deep, alright

A few years back I lost my way
I was deep in the woods, I began to pray
I came to a river and I sat on its bank
It was cool and clear, I have Jesus to thank
I drank that water, yes, I drank it up
Now every day I come back and fill my cup

Singing, how deep is that river? How deep is that river? Yes
I don't wanna know if it's yours or mine
I don't need to know if it's east or west
Before I put my fears to rest
I just wanna know how deep

How deep is that river? How deep is that river? Yes
I don't wanna know where it's coming from
I don't need to know where it's going to
Before I place my trust in you
I just wanna know how deep

I just wanna know how deep
I just wanna know how deep
