There was always a power I could feel
It was guidance to tell me the way to go
But nowadays I feel like I can't hear that voice
I've been flying blind
I need You to come and be my eyes

River rise, carry me back home
I cannot remember the way
River rise, carry me back home
I surrender today

I was always a charmed flower child
I would sit for hours and listen to the sky
But nowadays I feel like I don't have that choice
I've been looking down in desperation
I need You to be my inspiration, yeah

River rise, carry me back home
I cannot remember the way
River rise, carry me back home
I surrender today

I bow down and I humble myself
I can't do this, Lord I need Your help
All the material things, they feel like chains
If You're not here beside me
You're the reason I see

Help me to remember the way
I surrender

Help me to remember
Only You can show me
Only You can show me the way
I surrender, I surrender today
You are the only way
Lord, I need You
