Chorus 1
There's a river there's a river
There's a river flowing from the throne
There's a river there's a river
And it flows throughout the world
There's a river there's a river
There's a river flowing from the throne
There's a river there's a river
And it's flooding over me

Verse 1
There's a river
Flowing from the throne
Not a gentle stream
But pow'rful flow
It brings the city
Of our God such joy
And springs of fountains
In her midst
On the banks the trees
Are full of life
There fruit just grows
And grows all the year round
The leaves are green
And never seem to die
They're for the healing
Of this world

Verse 2
You invited me
To come for free
Enjoy the feast
You had prepared for me
Draw with laughter
From Your sparkling wells
Bathed in Your river of delights
First You led me to
The edge of the stream
Cautiously I put my ankles in
Then through with dusty
Marks to describe
And I heard You
Call me deeper still

Verse 3
I'm overwhelmed that
You've forgiven me
By Your blood I'm
Supernaturally free
How I love Your spontaneity
Your ways are far
Higher than mine
At times You fill me
Like a drunken man
At times Your power's
So strong I cannot stand
But today Your effervescent joy
Has made me irresponsibly glad
