  • Rolling River God
    Little Stones are smooth
    Only once the water passes through
    So I am a stone
    Rough and grainy still
    Trying to reconcile this river's chill

    [Chorus]
    But when I close my eyes
    And feel you rushing by
    I know that time brings change
    And change takes time
    And when the sunset comes
    My prayer would be this one
    That you might pick me up
    And notice that I am
    Just a little smoother in your hand

    Sometimes raging wild
    Sometimes swollen high
    Never have I known this river dry
    The deepest part of you
    Is where I want to stay
    And feel the sharpest edges wash away

    [Chorus]

    And when I close my eyes
    And feel you rushing by
    I know that time brings change
    And change takes time
    And when the sunset comes
    My prayer would be just this one
    That you might pick me up
    And notice that I am
    Just a little smoother in your hand Writer/s: JOYCE, NORDEMAN, TOMALTY
