Brian Doerksen – The River lyrics
To the river I am going bringing sins I cannot bear
Come and cleanse me, come forgive me Lord I need to meet you there

In these waters, healing mercy flows with freedom from despair
I am going, to that river Lord I need to meet you there

Precious Jesus, I am ready to surrender every care
Take my hand now, lead me closer Lord I need to meet you there

Come and join us, in the river Come find life beyond compare
He is calling, He is waiting Jesus longs to meet you there
He is calling, He is waiting Jesus longs to meet you there

Precious Jesus, I am ready to surrender every care
Take my hand now, lead me closer Lord I need to meet you there
Take my hand now, lead me closer Lord I need to meet you there

    This wonderful song is trying to indicate to us that we must leave whatevere sins we are doing and go follow the way that Jesus is calling us
    Even if it is difficult but only endurance , we are otht and ought to keep moving towards the river where we shall find every help.

    This is a song about surrendering everything to Jesus. It usually uplifts me when am feeling down, most especially that part of "Lord i need to meet you there....take my hand lead me closer"... To the river is the place where you lay down all that is burdening you. God will never forsake you no matter what.
    Even though you go through the hard times, Jesus will always be there. Surrender to Him, all shall be well, He promised He will be with you.
