Words and music by robert sterling

A rushing river sweeps around us
Just as dark and cold as night, it surrounds us
But we pass through the water to a safer shore
We're sheltered from the raging river's roar

[Chorus:]
Though the night is long
And the river's strong
Still God is with us
We can stem the tide
Reach the other side
For God is with us

The river deepens, night grows darker
And the struggle seems to be getting harder
Today has troubles yesterday has never known
But we don't have to face them on our own

(repeat chorus)

And when we face the river's roll
He holds our hand and won't let go
