Get Down to The River

joran-felizIn this day and age, how did “The River” by Jordan Feliz become a chart topping song?

It hints to our hunger for home; it sounds an ancient theme; it invites us to where he says, “I know a place…”

I invite you to join him in getting down to the river to pray:

 

 

The River, by Colby Wedgeworth, Joshua Silverberg, & Jordan Feliz

I know a place where we can go
To lay the troubles down eating your soul
I know a place where mercy flows
Take the stains make you whiter than snow

[Pre-Chorus]
Like a tide, it is rising up deep inside a current that moves and makes you come alive
Living water that brings the dead to life, oh-oh-oh-oh

[Chorus]
We’re going down to the river
Down to the river, down to the river to pray
Let’s get washed by the water
Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace
Let’s go down, down, down to the river (You will leave changed)
Let’s go down, down, down to the river (Never the same)

I’ve seen it move in my own life
Took me from dusty roads into paradise
All of my dirt, all of my shame
Drowned in the streams that’ve made me born again

Like a tide, it is rising up deep inside a current that moves and makes you come alive
Living water that brings the dead to life, oh-oh-oh-oh

We’re going down to the river
Down to the river, down to the river to pray
Let’s get washed by the water
Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace
Let’s go down, down, down to the river (You will leave changed)
Let’s go down, down, down to the river (Never the same)

Let’s go down
(Huuuu- huhuuuh)
(Huuuu)
Let’s go down
(Huuuu- huhuuuh)
(Huuuu)
Let’s go down

We’re going down to the river
Down to the river, down to the river to pray
Let’s get washed by the water
Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace
Let’s go down, down, down to the river (You will leave changed)
Let’s go down, down, down to the river (Never the same)

Goo down
Ooooo ooooh
Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go in amazing grace
Let’s go down, down, down to the river
Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go in amazing grace

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.

    Yes! Will be seeing Jordan sing this song live (hopefully) at the youth conference he is performing at this month. The world needs these reminders…
