Ray Boltz – I Go To The River lyrics

I Go To The River
Words by Ray Boltz and Brent Alan Henderson, Music by Ray Boltz, Brent Alan Henderson, and Steve Millikan
I have walked in a garden
The morning after the rain
I have watched in silent wonder
As everything changed
Oh, what a gift from the Father
Is the Water of Life
Like a river that flows
Deep in my soul
Its from an endless supply
Chorus I:
Where do I go
When I'm thirsty and dry?
I go to the river
And I always find
Rest for my soul
Peace for my mind
I go to the river
When Jesus prayed in the garden
His brow was furrowed with pain
And what appeared to be drops of blood
Were falling down like the rain
He found strength for the journey
He found it down on His knees
And where He knelt a river flows
And it flows for you and me
Chorus I
Chorus ii:
What do I do
When I'm covered with stains
I go to the river and I wash them away
Everythings new
Everythings changed
I go to the river
Its a river of healing
Its a river of faith
Its a river of gladness
Its a river of grace
Its a river of mercy
Its a river of love
Its a river of freedom
Its a river of blood
Chorus I, chorus ii
Chorus I, chorus ii
