Lyrics
Don't Try To Push The River (Just Hold On) C 2005 Richard Trevor Bassett

Verse 1:

She was standing by his graveside as they lowered him from sight
She was thinking about his life time of working day and night
Then her eyes turned up to heaven and she couldn't help but think
God what have you done to me

Sitting at the kitchen table for the first time all alone
She finds a note in some flowers sitting by the phone

And in that bunch of daisies
Were words that made her tremble
Words that made her understand

Chorus:

Don't try to push the river
All you get is wet
Don't try to hurry God along
If he's not ready yet
Just live your life the best you can
Have faith in God and his great plan
Don't try to push the river
Just hold on, just hold on

Verse 2:

He was standing on a roof top ten stories from the ground
Waiting for the perfect moment to let it all come down
Stretched his arms right up to heaven as the tears rolled down his face

And like a choir of angels
He hears children singing
And his life is forever changed


Chorus:

Don't try to push the river
All you get is wet
Don't try to hurry God along
If he's not ready yet
Just live your life the best you can
Have faith in God and his great plan
Don't try to push the river
Just hold on, just hold on
