​Parable Of The River

This song is by First Call and appears on the album God Is Good (1989).

There once was a kingdom in the fairest of lands
Fed by a river so true
And all of the kingdom drew life from its waters
In beauty and wisdom it grew
For high in the mountains, the tiniest brook
Gave its life to a stream
The streams flowed together and came to the river
To join and sing:

Flow to the river!
Hear the waters cry
"We must flow to the river
To keep this kingdom alive!"

Outside the kingdom lay dry barren land
In spite of the river so true
The life in its water was there for the taking
No one drew!
So the river cried out to the brooks and the streams
"Come carve out a pathway to me
And together, we'll rush through this dry desert land
With the song of spring!"

Flow to the river!
Hear the waters cry
"We must flow to the river
To keep this kingdom alive!"

Flow to the river!

My soul longs to flow with the tiniest brook
I'll give my life to receive
My place in the river that feeds the kingdom
And calls to me...

Flow to the river!
Hear the waters cry
"We must flow to the river
To keep this kingdom alive!"

Flow to the river!
Hear the waters cry
"We must flow to the river
To keep this kingdom..."

Flow to the river
Flow to the river
I want to meet You there!
I want to meet You there!
Take my hand
And let's flow to the river!
Flow to the river
Flow to the river
I want to meet You there!
Here we go!

Flow to the river
Flow to the river
Flow to the river
Flow to the river...
