Mighty River Lyrics

I was watching, I was waiting
For a sign
I was waiting
For voices from the sky
In the desert I was wandering
Oh hard and stony ground
When I came upon a rive
That was rolling homeward bound
 
River, might river
Mighty river, flowing down
 
So I waded in that river
And lay me down
In the cool
Water washing over me
Wash the blood off of my hands
Help me blinded hear to see
Ask the holy ghosts to come and 
Drive the demons out of me 
 
River, might river
Rolling down
Rolling home
To where the water meets the sky
Burdened with my sins
Burdened with my sorrows
Take the darkness of my past
Give me hope for new tomorrow
 
River, might river
Rolling down
Rolling home
To where the water meets the sky
Let the scales fall from my eyes 
Heal the wounds I made in anger
Take my price and jealousy 
Wash me clean in your mercy
