lyrics

Old faces, restless broken souls
All these old faces and young ones without homes

Though the waters rise and our spirits fall,
the Lord our God, he is watching over it all
and he’s watching us now.

We say,
“Oh, what a tragic story!
But only they can be blamed.
But oh, what a different song we should have sang
when the floodwaters came.”

Don’t wait to give them higher ground.
No, don’t you wait to feed their hungry mouths.

Though the waters rise and our spirits fall
the Lord our God, he is watching over it all
and he’s watching us now.

We say,
“Oh, what a tragic story!
But here’s what we would have done.
But oh, what a different song we will sing
when the floodwaters come.”

Rescue the tired, the sick and depressed.
Give them, give them your very best.

Though the waters rise and our spirits fall
the Lord our God, he is watching over it all
Though the waters rise and our spirits fail
the Lord our God, he is with us all the while
and he shall prevail.
