I will not drown in shallow water
Not with your love within my reach
I did not come this far to falter
And will not rest until I'm free

You are the sun you are the flower
You are the wind across the sea
And I will kneel here at your alter
And pray you'll take my soul to keep

Oh precious one you are the mountain
You are the earth beneath my feet
In you we're one now and forever
In you I find the love in me

Through your love my eyes are open
Through your love I'll learn to see
And in your name my bread is broken
By your grace I'll rest in peace

I will not drown in shallow water
Not with your love within my reach
I did not come this far to falter
And will not rest until I'm free

Through your love my eyes are open
Through your love I'll learn to see
And in your name my bread is broken
By your grace I'll rest in peace

I will not drown in shallow water
Not with your love within my reach
I did not come this far to falter
And will not rest until I'm free

I will not rest until I'm free
Until I'm free

    The first time i heard this song was while watching touched by an angel too. I think it means that i will not be overcome by lifes troubles, when god is right there to help me. He has brought me too far to leave me and there is complete freedom in his presence.

    A guy getting saved by god,and letting nothing turn him back. Wants to continue to live his life for jesus. Until he see eternity.
