I've been lookin' at the past 
I've wasted too much time 
on things that won't last 
I've built a kingdom out 
of rubble and sand 
But I don't, don't want 
to hold on to it all 
I'm ready for the river 
to run and wash it away 
I'm singin'

Come sweet water, cleanse my soul 
Shower me and make me whole 
Consume me with your healing flood 
Leave no traces of the man that 
I was Before the river came

There's no freedom in the chains 
They'll hold you captive to the guilt of your stains 
One drop of water brings an ocean of change 
And I long , I long to move on from it all 
I'm ready for the river to run and wash it away I'm singin'

Come sweet water, cleanse my soul 
Shower me and make me whole 
Consume me with your healing flood 
Leave no traces of the man that 
I was Before the river came

Bridge: Baptize and bury me until only 
You remain (come and rescue me) 
I don't want to be the man I was 
Long before the river came

Come sweet water, cleanse my soul 
Shower me and make me whole 
Consume me with your healing flood 
Leave no traces of the man that 
I was Before the river came
