Inspirational Song For Today: The River

Have you ever heard a song that makes you want to get up and dance? This is how I have felt every time that I heard this song today (and I don’t normally dance)… and that’s exactly what I did. Dance. Like David danced in the streets, praising the Lord, I praise God for all that He has done for us and for all that He is doing now… for whatever it is, it makes my spirit just want to rise up and dance. Join me in praising God for His amazing grace and mercy that He bestows upon us all.

“The River” by Jordan Feliz

I know a place where we can go
To lay the troubles down eating your soul
I know a place where mercy flows
Take the stains make you whiter than snow

Like a tide, it is rising up deep inside
a current that moves and makes you come alive
Living water that brings the dead to life,
oh-oh-oh-oh

We’re going down to the river
Down to the river,
down to the river to pray
Let’s get washed by the water
Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace
Let’s go down, down, down to the river
(You will leave changed)
Let’s go down, down, down to the river
(Never the same)

I’ve seen it move in my own life
Took me from dusty roads into paradise
All of my dirt, all of my shame
Drowned in the streams that’ve made me born again

Like a tide, it is rising up deep inside
a current that moves and makes you come alive
Living water that brings the dead to life,
oh-oh-oh-oh

We’re going down to the river
Down to the river,
down to the river to pray
Let’s get washed by the water
Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace
Let’s go down, down, down to the river
(You will leave changed)
Let’s go down, down, down to the river
(Never the same)

Let’s go down
Let’s go down
Let’s go down

We’re going down to the river
Down to the river,
down to the river to pray
Let’s get washed by the water
Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace
Let’s go down, down, down to the river
(You will leave changed)
Let’s go down, down, down to the river
(Never the same)

Oh down
Oh oh
Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go down in amazing grace
Let’s go down, down, down to the river
Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go down in amazing grace

On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” (When he said “living water,” he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.) John 7:37-39 NLT

    • Thanks for sharing. Beautiful clear water… “new water”. I can see how that river came to your mind. Love fresh flowing waters. A lovely place to rest in God’s Presence.

      • Yes, God was so good to us on that holiday. We were students and had to be off campus for two months. We went away with $80 and no income. He led us to that beautiful river and lots of other unforgettable places. We only had to camp for 4 days, the rest of it God arranged houses for us to house-sit in Auckland and a small town in Hawkes Bay. I learned a lot about God as a provider on that holiday, how trustworthy and imaginative He is. Is was a great way to rest after all the difficult years. God bless, Jo

      • Our Father is so amazing. He brings us down paths to teach us that He is our Provider, our Healer, our Rescuer… our everything. Nothing is impossible with God. What an awesome experience you had!!!
