From the throne of God and from the Lamb the river flows.
Life redeeming, ever healing, age to age it goes.
No more sun, the Holy One - our light that ever shines.
Crystal clear, the river here, will swell our hearts to join the cry!

Awake, O sleeper, rise to life, and Christ will give you light!
Lift your head - behold the river.
He mounts his throne to shouts of praise; be opened heaven's gates.
Enter in, O King of Glory!

"Come!" the Spirit calls, and with the bride the Spirit cries:
"Souls that thirst can drink their fill of water without price.
Blest are those who wash their robes to gain the tree of life.
Face to face with endless grace, lift up your hearts to hear the cry!"

Awake, O sleeper, rise to life, and Christ will give you light!
Lift your head - behold the river.
He mounts his throne to shouts of praise; be opened heaven's gates.
Enter in, O King of Glory!

Sixteen scriptural based songs marked by reverence and joy, 
that will inspire worship in Spirit and truth

In an effort to encourage song writers in the Sword of the Spirit to use their talents for the Lord's work, a music CD was been produced with 16 new songs, all written by members of the Sword of the Spirit in the North American communities, and performed by talented musicians of the various university outreaches (many of whom wrote songs for the project as well).
