‘Wherever the river flows,
all living creatures teeming in it will live.
…wherever the water goes it brings health,
and life teems wherever the river flows.’
– Ezekiel 47:9
The vision of the river revitalising everything it meets as it flows,
is so inspiring…and uplifting;
Christ is so much like that river – that river is Christ!
Once the water of this river touches us
our sins and impurities are washed away,
and we walk out of the water, our hearts filled with grace,
with fear of the Lord and with hope in Jesus.
O River, River of love
River of fresh and living water,
River of life and healing.
Powerfully flowing out from Christ
flowing out from the heart of Jesus,
approaching, so as to touch our lives,
Let us open the door for this river
and let Jesus Christ enter triumphantly!
– a free translation of the original Maltese song of worship Xmara]
Flow, river flow!
Come Lord Jesus,
and flood me with your grace and mercy.
Quench my great thirst, Lord,
heal me, wash me clean,
renew me…and give me life!
