Carman – The River lyrics

It doesn't matter who you are
It doesn't matter where you've been
It doesn't matter what the scar
It doesn't matter what the sin
It doesn't matter how you fell
Somewhere along the way
There is healing for your life today

There's a river that flows
From the fountain of God
And it heals everything along the way
I have tasted and know
That for every broken heart
There is healing in Jesus' name

He looks beyond how far you've gone
He looks beyond when you were hurt
He looks beyond who stole your song
He looks beyond what made it worse
He looks beyond where others failed
To reach out to you and say
There's healing for your life today


It's a river that loves
It's a river that lives
It's the river of life
Living water is gives

    There is healing for my life today! :)
    I haven't heard this song in years but tonight it was running through my mind. God speaks to me through songs. Even when I haven't heard it for years. I have been really down today about my circumstances. This song had to be from god. I would never have remembered it on my own. Just the right song for just the right moment.
