  • by Gary Chapman
  • There is a river running through this town
  • It carries the water
  • There isn't any way to slow it down
  • Or make it stop
  • I was a baby when the big bridge fell
  • So I don't remember
  • But I have listened to the stories well
  • And so I know
  • They were falling
  • To the surface
  • They were calling
  • To their God
  • And their cry was
  • Sweet Jesus, please won't you catch us, save us
  • Sweet Jesus, please won't you hear us crying
  • Fishing for luck beneath the bridge that day
  • A man in his eighties
  • He saw it happen and began to pray
  • As he dove in
  • He found a mother and a baby boy
  • They both wouldn't make it
  • The mama handed him her only joy
  • He took the child
  • Then he was swimming
  • Like he was twenty
  • He made shoreline
  • Then he died
  • And his thoughts were
  • Sweet Jesus, please won't you catch us, save us
  • Sweet Jesus, please won't you hear us crying
  • He was crying
  • I miss my mother and the brave old man
  • Though I never knew them
  • They are the soul inside the man I am
  • I bear their dreams
  • And I am walking
  • In their footsteps
  • I am talking
  • To their God
  • And my cry is
  • Sweet Jesus, please won't you catch us, save us
  • Sweet Jesus, please won't you hear us crying
  • Sweet Jesus, please won't you catch us, save us
  • Sweet Jesus, please won't you hear us crying
  • We're all crying
  • There is a river running through this town
  • It carries the water
  • There isn't any way to slow it down
  • Or make it stop
