10. Out of the River

by Psalm


Oh brothers letís go down
Letís go down come on down
Oh brothers letís go down
Down to the river to pray
Good oleí way

I pray you forgive me for all of my doubts God when
My heart is encumbered and Iím slipping under my spirit so down trodden
So father remind me of simpler times when I knew that youíd guide me through every storm
Cause lately itís hazy that day that you saved me has turned to a maybe Iím simply not sure
Were you even there at all
Did you really hear that call
Cause I - I remember that fall
Feeling like my back was up against that wall
And I - I hit my knees and I stayed there for over 4 weeks
Back in those days every time I would pray I could swear I hear my Lord speak
And I gave my life up, gave a lot of pain and strife up
And it really felt good and I felt like i could cause I knew where I gained my light from
But these days itís so hard
And these days itís so dark
And these days I pray and pray and pray but still feel no spark
No heart so far


So father please come back
Please father just come back
Give me an answer give me an answer
Remind me where is that love at
I went to the river
I went underwater
I came up again and I raised up my hands
Forgiven delivered from slaughter
And destruction and dysfunction
And that terrible rut I was stuck in
And thank God I was changed my family was saved
Was living in grace and was loving it
But Iím in that rut again
Still seeking you through all this suffering
I pray it gets better but nothing ends
The mud has been once again shoveled in
So tighten my belt and I suck it in
But the troubles been that Iím buckling
I need a revival, so read through my Bible
Been checking the skies for vital signs of life
God where did the time go, my sights gone
And Christ knows Iím so light low

When it felt so real
And it felt so right
When you felt so near me God
When I felt your light
Now itís all routine
Religion by ritual
But it donít feel free
And it doesnít feel spiritual
And somedays I just think Iím really in need of a place where I can pray alone
My patience gone my faith has grown so cold God who Iím waiting on
Iím falling apart just waiting for good news, so if you
Are the God that I say that you are just open your heart and God you could glue
The pieces together believe that you never would leave us and sever the peace of forever
And ever and ever and ever and ever, you never gone leave us you really mean never
Too much adversityís hurting me certainly
Praying so fervently come do your work in me
Lately the earth has been doing itís worst to me
Pardon the urgency have you deserted me
Iím pretty sure I need spiritual surgery
