There Is A River Lyrics- Jars Of Clay

“There Is A River” Lyrics

There is a river that washes you clean
There is a tree that marks the places you`ve been
Blood that was spilled, although not your own,
For all of your tears, are the wages for things you have done

And all of those nights
Spent alone in the darkness of your mind
Give it up, Let go
These are things you were never meant to shoulder

There is a river that washes you clean
There is a tree that marks the places you`ve been
Blood that was spilled, although not your own
For all of those tears, love will atone

So, give up the right
To control the waves that empty out your life
Above wild skies
Are the rays that break the shadows we design

Give it up, let go
These are things you were never meant to shoulder
Give it up, let go

There is a river that washes you clean
There is a tree that marks the places you`ve been
Blood that was spilled, although not your own
For all of those things, love will atone

I know the world can turn in different ways
Most of the time, we`re simply hanging on
And under the signs of how we all behave
We might find the place where we belong

There is a river that washes you clean
There is a tree that marks the places you`ve been
Blood that was spilled, although not your own
For all of these things, love will atone

For all of those nights, that you cried all alone

*Words and music by Dan Haseltine, Charlie Lowell, Stephen Mason, Matt Odmark
