Classic Country K. A. Patterson: Albums

The River

(K. A. Patterson and the Paradise Band featuring Mike & David)


Our lives are just a winding river.  And where they’re bound for we cannot say.

For only God knows just when and wither the stream of life will turn and guide our way.

The winding of these currents rolls on forever.  Every life is just one ripple, for a time.

Events and names and places we can never understand until unfolds the plan Divine.


And even if it was for us to know the meaning of all things as they occur,

We still may not know how the plan is meant to unfold until, by faith, we let the river turn.

As the winding river of our life still onward churns.


The meaning of this life grows clearer with every bend and turn the river takes.

And when we realize the bountiful giver of life holds all the keys to knowledge of our fate,

Do we learn the lesson that the river teaches – how to trust, believe, keep patient, and to wait?

Or go on striving to assemble pieces, ever blinded to the puzzle ‘til too late?


For even if it was for us to know the meaning of all things as they occur,

We still may not know how the plan is meant to unfold until, by faith, we let the river turn.

The winding river of our life is how we learn.


Our lives are just a winding river.  And where we're bound for we cannot say.

For only God knows just when and wither the stream of life will turn and guide our way.
