|chorus:|| like a river close to sea
's flowing calm and patiently
i am coming, oh my lord, have mercy!
when my voice is down and low
i can hear the trumpet blow
you are calling me, oh lord, have mercy!
|verse:|| holy moses felt so tired
having made his people flee
and the lord showed up in fire
but he never, never, never
did allow his face to see.
| when i left my home and brothers
strolling like a tumbling die
well he always sent me others
who did ever, ever, ever
turn my mind back to rely.
|bridge:|| ancient witness - come to guide me!
holy choir - lift my mind!
all ye brothers - be aside me!
when i come to see my lord so kind!
|verse:|| i've seen trouble all around me
i know pain and grief and fear
but my lord, he always found me
and forever, -ever, -ever
made my heart believe he's near.
|like the river -- close to sea|
|soloist:|| when you're calling -- give me patience
rise my mind up -- to perceive
give me brothers -- to hold on to
turn my heart back -- to believe
