There is a river not of this world,
A river so pure and clear.
Swim to its clear, sandy bottom and
Breathe it in without fear!
The flow of this river goes on
Clear, bright, a cleansing pure stream!
Flowing through that City of God
I am transfixed by its gleam!
Of course, it brings gladness and joy!
Its sparkling, bright flow makes glad
All dwellers in God’s fair land
How can any be sad?
This City of God will flourish
And keep flourishing as long
As out God rules that fair city
And gives everyone a song!
The old, old song of deliverance
That Christ bought with His blood!
How can we ever forget it?
Life giving, cleansing flood.
That sacrifice, yes, we will remember
While ages continue to roll
Forever and forever with
God in complete control!
Then what have I to worry over?
Why should I fret at all?
Did God not say He would take care of us?
So come on! Have a ball!
