  1. Song help?

    My worn out brain isn't working, anyone know the name and/or singer of the contemporary Christian song that goes something like this...."the river is deep, the river is wide..." , has a pretty fast tempo, male singer.

    I'm home all to myself and get to blast whatever music I like!:D Please help!

    Franks!

    Come to the River

    Michael Novak

    Come to the river, wash away your sin.
    Come to the river and be born again.
    Come to the river; come to the healing flow.

    For the river is wide and the river is deep.
    The river is strong and clear.
    It flows through this place
    and it's always near.
    For the rover flows from the throne of God.

    Come to the river, see what God can do.
    Come to the river, heart and sould renew.
    Come to the river; Come to the healing flow.

    Come to the river for that sweet, sweet show'r.
    Come to the river and be hold his pow'r
    Come to the river; Come to the healing flow.

    seen him several times in concert. I know that this is exactly what he plays.

    Intro:


    The long awaited rains
    Have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground
    Have carved their way to where
    The wild and rushing river can be found
    And like the rains
    I have been carried here to where the river flows, yeah
    My heart is racing and my knees are weak

    As I walk to the edge
    I know there is no turning back
    Once my feet have left the ledge
    And in the rush I hear a voice
    That's telling me it's time to take a leap of faith
    So here I go!


    I'm diving in, I'm going deep, in over my head I want to be
    Caught in the rush, lost in the flow, in over my head I want to go
    The river�s deep, the river�s wide, the river�s water is alive,
    so sink or swim I'm diving in

    INTRO

    There is a supernatural power
    In this mighty river�s flow
    It can bring the dead to life
    And it can fill an empty soul
    And give a heart the only thing
    Worth living and worth dying for
    But we will never know the awesome power
    Of the grace of God
    Until we let ourselves get swept away
    Into this holy flood
    So if you'll take my hand
    We'll close our eyes and count to three
    And take the leap of faith
    Come on let's go!

    Bridge:

    so sink or swim I'm diving in, so sink or swim I'm diving in
    so sink or swim I'm diving in
