Take Me To The River

This song is by John Elefante and appears on the album Windows of Heaven (1995).

We talk about love, we talk about truth, we talk about mercy
They are words we often use even though we still abuse each other
Why do we find it hard to comprehend that there's a love that knows no end
There's no question in my mind where I would go to find
Where my sins will be forgotten and the water turns to wine

So take me to the river when my well runs dry
Where the weak become the strong, and I won't be denied
Where my faith can move a mountain and the foolish are the wise
So take me to the river when my well runs dry

Let it rain down from the heavens, fill my hearts desire
Like a mountain filled with fire, let it overflow
It will be like in a dream, like no place you've ever seen
Let it take you
To a river far and wide where you'll never be denied
I wanna be next to you, I just wanna be next to you

So take me to the river when my well runs dry
Where the weak become the strong and I won't be denied
Where my faith can move a mountain and my soul is satisfied
Take me to the river when my well runs dry
Where my sins are all forgotten and the water turns to wine
Won't you take me to the river

If I could build a ladder reaching to the sky
I would shake the clouds and let it rain on me
But all that I can do is rely on you
To wash me in the river of your love
To wash me in the river of your love

So take me to the river when my well runs dry
Where the weak become the strong, and I won't be denied
Where my faith can move a mountain and the foolish are the wise
Won't you take me to the river
Take me, take me, take me, take me
