Praying On The Mississippi

As the Mississippi River
Flows along so gracefully...
I feel the power of My Lord
Quickly take hold over me...

Her current is so powerful,
Her rapid water is so warm...
I feel God’s love is ever so present,
Blessed thoughts begin to swarm...

The Mississippi has the power
To push boats quickly past the land...
As I walk peacefully along her banks
And place my worries in God’s Hand...

As her fast moving currents steer
The barges down the open river...
I feel God’s everlasting presence
An emotion so strong in its deliver...

This magnificent body of water
So vigorous with all its treasure...
It’s truly a miraculous blessing
To have God as my almighty measure...

Since the beginning her brown waters
Have flowed rapidly towards the South...
And it’s through this mighty river
That God’s love will flow past her famous mouth...

God’s Nature is so beautiful
Offering peacefulness from above...
As the captains blow their whistles
I’m filled with God’s unconditional love...

As I walk along her banks
And gaze at Manresa from the levee...
I feel truly blessed to know my Lord
Is there when my life gets too heavy...
