Find me in the river
Find me on my knees
I've walked against the water
Now I'm waiting if you please

We've longed to see the roses
But never felt the thorns
And bought our pretty crowns
But never paid the price

Find me in the river
Find me there
Find me on my knees with my soul laid bare
Even though you're gone and I'm cracked and dry
Find me in the river, I'm waiting here

Find me in the river
Find me on my knees
I've walked against the water
Now I'm waiting if you please

We didn't count on suffering
We didn't count on pain
But if the blessing's in the valley
Then in the river I will wait

    General CommentI think this song is so meaningful and I'm surprised there's no comments before mine. This song means a lot to me so I've decided to do a sort of line by line analysis. Thats how sad I am!

    Find me in the river (I'm here waiting for you)
    Find me on my knees (I'm submitting myself)
    I've walked against the water (I've been trying to walk the opposite way)
    Now I'm waiting if you please (Now I've stopped and am waiting for you)

    We've longed to see the roses (We wanted all the beauty of Christian life)
    But never felt the thorns (But never realised the suffering that may be involved)
    And bought our pretty crowns (We made ourselves seem better than others)
    But never paid the price (But there is a price for that)

    Find me in the river (So come find me here)
    Find me there (obvious)
    Find me on my knees with my soul laid bare (I'm laying it all down, there is nothing I can hide from you)
    Even though you're gone and I'm cracked and dry (I've felt like you're gone and its made me dry)
    Find me in the river, I'm waiting here (obvious)

    Find me in the river (I've said)
    Find me on my knees (I've said)
    I've walked against the water (I've said too)
    Now I'm waiting if you please (...)

    We didn't count on suffering (We didn't realise it would be this hard)
    We didn't count on pain (We didn't realise it would hurt)
    But if the blessing's in the valley (But if good times are to come)
    Then in the river I will wait (I will wait until the river (hard times) has worn away the land and created a beautiful valley)
