Words and Music by Andy Park

The River is Here

 C        G            D      G
Down the mountain the river flows
        C         G          D        G
And it brings refreshing wherever it goes
 C           G          D         G
Through the valleys and over the fields
     C        G               D        G
The river is rushing and the river is here

    G                      C      G
The river of God sets our feet a-dancing
                            D           G
The river of God fills our hearts with cheer
                            C           G
The river of God fills our mouths with laughter
    C     G             D        G
And we rejoice for the river is here

     C        G      D            G
The river of God is teeming with life
     C       G            D    G
And all who touch it can be revived
     C          G         D     G
And those who linger on this river's shore
      C         G             D           G
Will come back thirsting for more of the Lord

Up to the mountain we love to go
To find the presence of the Lord
Along the banks of the river we run
We dance with laughter giving praise to the Son
