For so long Iíve traveled a river of sadness and shame.
Hiding my face, running from who I am.
Running a lonely and long road.

Running alone and afraid.
Shying from all.
Edging closer to hope

Edging closer to hope.
Meeting others.
Others who understand.

Others who understand
The pain and shame
Giving hope

Giving hope
Hope of life
Life less ordinary

A life less ordinary
A life of grace
On a river of joy

On a river of joy
Where life begins
Where surviving turns to thriving

Join me on this trip on the river of joy.
