Third Day, “Your Love is Like a River”

Mac Powell and the rest of Contemporary Christian pop-rock band Third Day have released some out-of-the-ballpark releases in their enviable career as one of Contemporary Christian music’s greatest bands, and Your Love is a River looks set to join their rich and blessed discography. Mac has never sounded so good, and to be honest, I’m liking this sound. It’s not too Southern gospel as some of their previous releases, and its pop leanings make it even more accessible to Christian AC. Your Love is a River‘s lyrics of grace and reliance on God are particularly poignant in light of the recent Boston Marathon bombings.

YOUR LOVE IS LIKE A RIVER Lyrics
Third Day

Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart

When this cruel world tears us apart
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
When sharpened words have left their scars
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
And it’s overflowing and showing us all
How deep and how wide is Your love
It never stops, it rages on
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart

When I am tired and so afraid
Your love is like a fire that will light my way
When darkness falls and my vision fades
Your love is like a fire that will light my way
And it’s always burning and stirring my soul
To know You and love You much more
It never stops or ever fades
Your love is like a fire that will light my way

IT’S NEVER GONNA STOP
IT’S FLOWING FROM MY HEART
IT’S NEVER GONNA FADE
YOUR LOVE WILL LIGHT MY WAY

When all my strength and hope is gone
Your love is like a rock that I am standing on

Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
Your love is like a fire that will light my way
Your love is like a rock that I am standing on
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
Your love is like a fire that will light my way
Your love is like a rock that I am standing on
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
