On the banks of the river looking for chances to get up
Stir up the pool and bring healing to bones that's feeling brittle
I've been beat up in the streets, but I believe something's coming
There's no way I can move unless You choose to do something
This life, this life is so heavy; lost my son, he in heaven
I was chasing this leaven hanging with dudes that is deadly
But this life is now over, moreover I'm ready go on
I'm ready to change it all Lord, just help me I'm all in
On the banks of the river looking out for the promised land
Tell Him I need Him now, I don't have any other plans
Sweet Lord, I know I need You, there's relief from the grief when I see You
Verse 12
I sing Glory, hallelujah!
We sing glory, sing glory!
I sing Glory, hallelujah!
We sing glory hallelujah!
