I was born in a river
Which had no soul
A water hole and I had no role
I was born in a river
And I had no soul
Man I was good as dead

Then I swam upstream
It was like a dream
My head was wired
And my arms were tired
I swam upstream
It was like a dream
I searched for who knows what

Then You on the bank
You reeled me in
You caught my fin
Forgave my sin
You on the bank
You reeled me in
And nothing’s been the same

You show Your Form
So Divine
And I me mine
Falls off the line
In Your Good Time
I see Your Sign
You are the Happy Man

What was me
You throw back in
I didn’t win
But now I grin
What was me
There’s not much left
A kind of theft
But now I’m in love with You

I was born in a river
Which had no soul
A water hole and I had no role
I was born in a river
And I had no soul
Man I was good as dead

Then I swam upstream
It was like a dream
My head was wired
And my arms were tired
You fished me out
With Your Hearts Shout
And now I’m a Happy Man
