Life may seem a valley
A struggle down below
But don't be overcome with grief
For the river ever flows

Life may seem to go underground
Of dark and shadowed view
But there is sure hope to know
A river's running through

Life may seem to hit a wall
Where depths are building up
But the river will still overflow
High above the mud

Life may seem the steepest climb
While longing for a drink
But you can stoop to quench your thirst
There's a river in the grit

Life may seem a barren walk
As plans go all askew
But Jesus' living water flows forever
He is the river running through

Soft Whispers for you from
Derry's Heart Poems 2005

I will make rivers flow on barren heights,
 and springs within the valleys.
I will turn the desert into pools of water,
and the parched ground into springs.
Isaiah 41:18

For this is what the LORD says:
"I will extend peace to her like a river
Isaiah 66:12

They feast on the abundance of Your house;
You give them drink from your river of delights.
Psalm 36:8

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life,
as clear as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
 Revelation 22:1
