  1. There At The River -:-- / 3:01

There at the River

I’m a broken record with grooves in my mind

I’ve been singing a theme I am bound to repeat

Oh, teach me a new song with love as the lyric

For I know, I know: there is help in time of need

There at the river that flows, Oh


I’ve been begging the question, I’m a beggar at your door

Tomorrow’s sun will see me begging there once more

Oh, lend me a penny and this day my daily bread

For I know, I know from your fullness we receive

There at the river that flows, Oh


I’m tree in the desert in a dry and weary land

The sands of time of time are blowing and I’m thirsty once again

Plant me by the waters and I’ll grow up strong and tall

For I know, I know you’re a fount of life to me,

There at the river that flows, Oh, oh, oh


Yeah, there is help in time of need;

From your fullness we receive;

You’re a fount of life to me,

There at the river,

There at the river,

There at the river that flows



Song notes:

“Blessed is the man… [whose] delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night… He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season.” Ps. 1:1-3

“On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, “Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’’’ Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive…” John 7:37-39

I have found myself seemingly learning the same lessons over and over and at some points it can seem like I haven’t made any progress. Sometimes my response makes it even worse, fixating on the problem, rather than thinking in a new way. I am grateful for the Lord’s patience and continual guidance and mercies that are new every morning and haven’t run out yet. Through His word and His Spirit and His people, my mind and heart are slowly becoming less of a broken record, and more of a new song.
