Steve Green – The River lyrics
There's a river ever flowing
Widening, never slowing
And all who wade out in are swept away

When it ends, where it's going
Like the wind no way of knowing
Until we answer the call to risk it all and enter in

The river calls, we can't deny
A step of faith is our reply
We feel the spirit draw us in
The water's swift, we're forced to swim

We're out of control
And we go where he flows

There's a river ever flowing
Widening, never slowing
And all who wade out in are swept away

When it ends, where it's going
Like the wind no way of knowing
Until we answer the call to risk it all and enter in

Danger awaits at every turn
We choose a course, we live and learn
As we surrender to His will
We're at peace but we're seldom still

He is in control
And we go where he flows

There's a river ever flowing
Widening, never slowing
And all who wade out in are swept away

When it ends and where it's going
Like the wind no way of knowing
Until we answer the call to risk it all
Until we answer the call to risk it all

There's a river ever flowing
Widening, never slowing
And all who wade out in are swept away

When it ends and where it's going
Like the wind no way of knowing
Until we answer the call to risk it all
Until we answer the call to risk it all

It's widening, never slowing
Will we answer and risk it all?
There's a river ever flowing, ever flowing
Be swept away
