Chris Tomlin – The River lyrics
When I was held up in chains
The river was free
When I was covered in stains
The river was clean
When I was losing my way
The river found me

I can see the river
I can feel the river
I'm letting go of all I hold onto
Let it wash away

When we were broken inside
The river was love
When we were thirsty and dry
You were more than enough
When we were drowning in lies
The river saved us

I can see the river
I can feel the river
I'm letting go of all I hold onto
Let it wash away

I'm dancing in the river
And I'll be here forever
I'm letting go of everything but You
Carry me away

Carry me away (x4)

I can see the river
It's washing me away
My life is in the river
And I'll be here forever
I'm letting go of all I hold onto
Can you see the river
Standing in the river
Letting go of everything, everything but you
