"Dive" as written by Ben Chapman and Francesca Longrigg....
(Oh)
The long awaited rains
Have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground
And carved their way to where
The wild and rushing river can be found
And like the rains
I have been carried to where the river flows, yeah
My heart is racing, and my feet are weak
As I walk to the edge
I know there is no turning back
Once my feet have left the ledge
And in the rush I hear a voice
That's telling me to take a leap of faith
So here I go

[Chorus]
I'm diving in, I'm going deep, in over my head I want to be
Caught in the rush, lost in the flow, in over my head I want to go
The river's deep, the river's wide, the river's water is alive
So sink or swim, I'm diving in

There is a supernatural power
In this mighty river's flow
It can bring the dead to life
And it can fill an empty soul
And give a heart the only thing
Worth living and worth dying for, yeah
But we will never know the awesome power
Of the grace of God
Until we let ourselves get swept away
Into this holy flood
So if you take my hand
We'll close our eyes and count to three
And take the leap of faith
Come on let's go

[Chorus]

Oh
Come on let's go

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentIt's about giving up your life, and just Diving into his love, sinking and being completely covered, not knowing what is to come, but diving in anyway because of His great love and mercy, taking risks, knowing that even if we sink that we are still safe in those waters

    General CommentSuperb song that I never get tired of. But is only me who thinks the chorus reminds a bit of "Tubthumping"?
