1 From the throne flows a wondrous stream,
On its waters the love lights gleam;
God the Father his mercy shows,
By the river which ever flows.
River of Eden fair and bright;
bearing a message from the throne of light;
God is love! God is love!
This is a message the river bears
From the throne above.
2 Clear as crystal the water flows,
Bearing blessings for human woes,
Balm for heartaches and peace for strife,
Health for all from the tree of life. [Chorus]
3 Blessed river! Flow on, flow on!
Bear your message from God the Son,
Unto all of your waters give,
Till all nations shall drink and live. [Chorus]
