Now that I am older, grayer
I can see more clearly how
All the years of my young rebellion fade
I am more mellow now
Still my heart is prone to wander
even though my soul’s been freed
It seems the closer that I get to You
the more I see my need
I could never live without You
You give so abundantly

Like a river, overflowing to my heart
My Forgiver, Healer, Savior
Oh how great Thou art

A little slower in my judgment
A little quicker with my hands
A little more desire and hunger
to know and obey Your commands
Even in my worst of moments
You pour out Your love on me

Like a river, overflowing to my heart
My Forgiver, Healer, Savior
Oh how great Thou art

I could never live without You
You give so abundantly

Like a river, overflowing to my heart
My Forgiver, Healer, Savior
Oh how great Thou art
