The River Runs Deep

oma-birthday-2012The River Runs Deep

There’s a river that runs deep, deep and long
There’s a river that runs deep, the current’s strong

I drank from the river of your life – – thankfully (repeat)

Your stream has fed my life, fed my life
Your current has moved me, moved me along

I drank from the river of your life – – thankfully (repeat)

 

Your singing has given me song, given me song
Your living has made me strong, made me strong

Your children will rise up, to bless your name
Grand children will rise up, to bless your name

There’s more road to walk, mountains to climb
80 years is a small drop, in the river of time

There’s a never ending stream of God’s Love (repeat)

There’s a river that runs deep, deep and long….

November 26, 2004 – song written for the occasion of my late mother’s 80th Birthday

About R.H. (Rusty) Foerger

As I enter the third third of life, I am becoming aware of the role of elders today “to enlarge spiritual vision, being devoted to prayer, living in the face of death, as a living curriculum of the Christian life” (Dr. James M. Houston). I am a life long and life wide learner who seeks to: *decipher the enigma of our worth *rescue from the agony of prayerlessness *integrate spiritual friendship.
