Story

There is a longing deep within every heart for peace and transcendent tranquility and I believe that place exists in some, as yet unknown form, in eternity.

Lyrics


I got business 'cross the river, hallelujah

I got business up the road, around the bend

I got business 'cross the river, hallelujah

I got business at the river's end

Now someone's down upon their knees and they're just prayin'

For the water that refreshes souls anew

But the rain that feeds the river's always fallin'

Fillin' up the river just for me and you 


CHORUS

'Cross the river our eyes will open

We will lay our burdens down

We will sing a song of deliverance

When we hear the river's sound


Someone's thirsting but they will not drink the water

Someone's searching but they will not read the signs

Still the river rolls on, can't you hear it singing

Calling out to every troubled mind

CHORUS

 

I got business 'cross the river, hallelujah

I got business at the river's end
