The lyrics speak so much to me, as a great message of my faith. The first verse says, "The long awaited rains, have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground. And carved their way to where the wild and rushing river can be found. And like the rain, I have been carried here to where the river flows, yeah." Then the second verse says, "My heart is racing and my knees are weak. As I walk to the edge, I know that there's no turning back. Once my feet have left the ledge, and in the rush I hear a voice, that's telling me it's time to take the leap of faith, so here I go!"
Then this is what the chorus says, "I'm diving in, Im going deep, in over my head I want to be, caught in the rush, tossed in the flow, in over my head I want to go. The river's deep, the river's wide, the river's water is alive. So sink or swim, I'm diving in. (I'm diving in)"
Then the third verse says, "There is a supernatural power, in this mighty river's flow. It can bring the dead to life, and it can fill an empty soul. And give a heart the only thing worth living, and worth dying for, yeah." Then the fourth verse says, "But we never know the awesome power of the Grace of God. Until we let ourselves get swept away, into this Holy flood. So if you'll take my hand, we'll close our eyes and count to three, and take the leap of faith, come on let's go." Then the chorus repeats again, and then there is a small instrumental break, followed by the chorus twice, and an ending tag.
This song has such a great message behind it, and that message is that if God's love is like a river, like a pond, whatever body of water you want, you should jump in, and be healed and saved.
This song was and is so much fun to sing in school. Sometimes I will be humming it on my way from class to class, and I was always singing it, when it came on in homeroom all four years back in Kellenberg.
I am so happy that I got to learn this song all those years ago, and I hope that you all will enjoy this song, as much as I do!
Have you ever heard this song before? Did you like this song like I do?
