Lyrics

PEACE LIKE A RIVER 

 

PEACE LIKE A RIVER     FLOWS THROUGH ME            PEACE LIKE A RIVER                      FLOWS THROUGH ME

PEACE LIKE A RIVER     FLOWS THROUGH ME               PEACE LIKE A RIVER                   FLOWS THROUGH ME

THY PEACE OH LORD     LIKE A RIVER                               FLOWS THROUGH ME FLOWS THROUGH ME

 

 

WHEN TIMES ARE DARK            AND THE LIGHT SEEMS DISTANT     AND ALLTHE WORLD SEEMS FULL OF FEAR

STILL:

 

PEACE LIKE A RIVER     FLOWS THROUGH ME               PEACE LIKE A RIVER                   FLOWS THROUGH ME

THY PEACE OH LORD                  LIKE A RIVER                  FLOWS THROUGH ME                 FLOWS THROUGH ME

 

WHEN TIMES ARE BRIGHT   AND THE LIGHT SEEEMS STRONG  AND ALL THE WORLD SEEMS IN  HARMONY

STILL

:

PEACE LIKE A RIVER     FLOWS THROUGH ME               PEACE LIKE A RIVER                   FLOWS THROUGH ME

THY PEACE OH LORD    LIKE A RIVER                                FLOWS THROUGH ME FLOWS THROUGH ME

 

IN WAKING, SLEEPING, EATING, BREATHING                THINKING, ACTING, LOVING,  SINGING

IN EVERY MOMENT OF MY LIVING                      NO MATTER WHAT LIFE SEEMS TO BRING

 

STILL:

PEACE LIKE A RIVER     FLOWS THROUGH ME               PEACE LIKE A RIVER                   FLOWS THROUGH ME

THY PEACE OH LORD    LIKE A RIVER                                FLOWS THROUGH ME FLOWS THROUGH ME

THY PEACE OH LORD    LIKE A RIVER                                FLOWS THROUGH ME FLOWS THROUGH ME
