Flow River Flow (AOV 1/163)

Bob Hurd‘s song is new to me but is very pretty and suitable for baptismal situations.  We would probably use Andersen’s “Come to the Water” or even Rita Baloche’s “Flowing River” but this is worth a listen.  The original can be heard here.

It can be purchased for download at OCP.

Flow river flow, flow over me.
O living water, poured out for free;
O living water, flow over me.

Verse 1

You will be mine
and I will be your God,
for I will wash you clean.
And a new heart,
a heart of flesh and feeling,
I will place within you
for your heart of stone.


Verse 2

The blind shall see,
the mute shall find a voice,
the lame shall leap for joy.
Rivers will flow
into dry and barren desert,
flowers bloom in splendor,
glory fill the land.


Verse 3

Whoever drinks the water I will give
will never thirst again.
The drink I give is an ever-flowing river,
welling up within you to give eternal life.
