Over the River

As soon as I finished my post yesterday, reflecting some on the idea of waiting for the Lord and reflecting on Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God…”, I imidiately thought of this song. I didn’t think of this song while doing the blog, otherwise I would have included it in the blog. And didn’t want to post another blog immediately, so thought I’d share this today. Such a beautiful song with powerful words and a reminder to hush and rest in hope and love…

Jon Foreman – Over the River

Hush, Hush, Hush …
I heard a sound come from the ground
All of the trees are a buzz
Talking in tongues, talking with lungs
Talking of freedom

All of the earth is soon to give birth
Look at the mountains alive
Birds and the bees, insects and leaves
All of us longing, longing for home
Home, home is somewhere I’ve never known

Over the river
Over the river
I’ve set my hope
Over the river
Over the river
I’ll find my hope in You, You

Death, where is your sting?
Your signet ring?
Where is your power?
Why all this war?
Death to the score
Nations are fading

Kingdom of light, setting us right
Finally human
Give me a tongue
It will be done
Inside I’m longing, longing for love
Love, love is something I’ve never known
