Rivers of Love

This is one of my favorites that I’ve written. It seems to be a favorite among others who hear it too. I’m blessed and humbled to get to write music that speaks to the hearts of those who listen to it. I’ve sung this song a couple of times at our church here in Washougal, WA, but I also had the privilege of performing this song at my brother’s church while we were back in the midwest.

The recording is just a scratch recording to get the arrangement idea across to our band at church, but it’s good enough to give you the idea.

Here are the words:

Verse 1

Walking the shores

I have been here before

I’ve been here so many times

Searching the sand

For what’s left of my plan

I don’t know what I hope to find

Pre-chorus 1

I fall to my knees

And say, “God please,

Won’t you take this heart of mine?”

He took my hand and showed me

Chorus

Rivers of Love

Oceans of Mercy

Flowing with grace

Leave not a trace

Of what condemns me

Rivers of Love

Oceans of Mercy

From the Father above

I’m not worthy of

This gift of the king.

Verse 2

Walking the desert

Of all of my hurt

The weight of the world on my mind

I’ve carried these burdens

As far as I can

But I just can’t leave them behind

Pre-chorus 2

I fall to my knees

And say, “God please,

Won’t you take this pain of mine?”

He took my hand and showed me

Chorus

Bridge

Pounding the shores

Of the nevermore

I’m constantly reminded

How I had been blinded

Who I was before

I’m not anymore

For I have found favor

At the hand of my savior

Who led me to where I could find

Chorus

Bridge
