There Is A River
The song is in 3/4 time and the intro starts on beat 3
F G F G G7 C G F
3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3
There came a sound from Heaven, as a rushing, mighty wind;
It filled their hearts with singing, and gave them peace within;
The prophet gave this promise: 'The spirit will descend,
and from your inner being, a river with no end'.
(C) There (F) is a (C) river
And it flows from (C+) deep with(F)in,
(G) There (F) is a (G) fountain
That frees the (G+) soul from (C) sin.
(C) Come (F) to this (C) water
There is a (C+) vast sup(F)ply,
(G) There (F) is a (G) river
(F) That (G)never (G7) shall run (C) dry. (A7)
And there (D) was a (G) thirsty (D) woman
She was (D) drawing (D+) from the (G) well,
See, her (A) life was (G) ruined and (A) wasted
And her soul was (A+) bound for (D) hell.
Oh, but (D) then she (G) met the (D) master
And he (D) told her (D+) of her (G) sin,
And he (A) said if you'll (G) drink this (A) water
(G)You'll (A) never (A7) thirst (D) again.
(D) There (G) is a (D) river
And it (D) flows from (D+) deep (G) within,
(A) There (G) is a (A) fountain
That (A) frees the (A+) soul from (D) sin.
Oh, (D) come (G) to this (D) river
There (D) is a (D+) vast (G) supply,
(A) There (G) is a (A) river
(G)That (A) never (A7) shall run (D) dry.
