Flood

Artist: Jars of Clay | Album: Jars of Clay | © 1995 Pogostick Music / Bridge Building Music

Rain rain on my face
It hasn’t stopped raining for days
My world is a flood
Slowly I become one with the mud

Chorus:
But if I can’t swim after forty days
And my mind is crushed by the crashing waves
Lift me up so high that I cannot fall
Lift me up
Lift me up – when I’m falling
Lift me up – I’m weak and I’m dying
Lift me up – I need you to hold me
Lift me up – keep me from drowning again

Downpour on my soul
Splashing in the ocean I’m losing control
Dark sky all around
I can’t feel my feet touching the ground

(Chorus)

Calm the storms that drench my eyes
Dry the streams still flowing
Casting down all waves of sin
And guilt that overthrows me

(Chorus)
