Still Waters

Still Waters
Ezekiel 47:1-12, Revelation 22:1-5
(Revelation Chapters 21 and 22)

I’m breathing . . . living . . . drowning
The Flood swept me
from under the sanctuary door
and out by the shade of the life tree
leaves of healing shimmered
and reflected beside me
death was lifted
the curse receded
the place of God was by this sea
the face of God; in front of me
where I drifted; as He carried me

we live where the river flows
taken where life goes
out by the tree lined crystal sea
God has made everything new
He leads us beside still waters
He bids us come and dive
to drown in His waters
where we are truly alive
the river so powerful it sweeps us away
out into eternity
to the dawn of the new day
