  8. Let The Healing Waters Flow

    Reminiscing on the past
    And the life left behind
    A tear builds with emotion
    Never a chance to rewind

    Move forward, just go o
    Press towrd your set mark
    Words so easy to speak
    Though never a place to start

    Precious memories play on and on
    From the journey through each day la
    For mending the empty heart
    That’s been shattered and tossed away

    Tears now begin streaming
    Rolling steadily down the face
    Little rivers cleanse the pain
    Washing the hurt away

    So let the healing waters flow
    Let them free the burdened soul
    Let them nourish and heal the body
    For newness to blossom and grow

    Open up the weary floodgates
    Let the healing waters flow
    These are no signs of weakness
    For you’ve carried a heavy load

    Growth comes now upon you
    Having endured the raging storm
    It’s time to fulfill your purpose
    Predestined before you was born

    Take a kneel, bow down to Him
    Praise His glorious Name
    It was Jesus Who coddled you softly
    When you couldn’t go another day

    It was He Who lay down His life
    He let His Healing Waters Flow
    Hanging upon the cross
    Felt pain you could never know

    Move forward, just go on
    This task can now be done
    Walk the righteous path
    Imputed by the Father’s Son.
