Clothed in red with a pretty bow around it
Held in chains with a heavy yoke surrounding
Deep longings never satisfied nor fulfilled
Never diving in but always beside the river

A river so pure, a river so blessed
It gently flows drawing me near
Oh let me fall sweep me away
But these chains will never let me dive

Fascinated, enthralled and totally captivated
Gleaming from afar – a ray of hope
Won’t something break me through and pierce my darkness?
Then a river so pure, a river so blessed
Chanced a glance at me for a spell

Deep down I saw and yearned for its promise
A healing river that makes the heart glad
So I drew close and moved beside its banks
Looking for a way in, a place to belong

The sun refused to shine and I missed the spot
The moon however tricked me and I fell inside
A miry and slippery pit it was
The earth also gave way and swallowed me whole
Until my cry reached the heavens and my tears overflowed

My heart ached within me till I opened it wide
Mercy came running and broke me out
Compassion wiped my tears and hope led the way
But love rose from the river and carried me home.
