"TAKE ME NOW"

Intro
Take me now down to the River.
Take me to the River.

Chorus
Take me now, take me now
Where the pure clear water never runs still.
Take me now, take me now
Oh, oh, down to the river of Your Will.

Verse 1
Want to be like You, Lord,
Goin' about doing good.
Want it to be said of me,
"He has done what he could."
Break the fascination,
Of the world and its attractions.
Renew the dedication,
That only a Christ-filled life
Will bring satisfaction.

[Repeat Chorus]

Verse 2
Help me to be willing
To see the need and respond,
To lay aside my program,
Just to do what needs to be done.
Oh I want to be Your man,
When You need someone to care.
With Your Word in hand,
Giving comfort,
Hope and love, and a prayer.

Chorus
Take me now, take me now
Where the pure clear water never runs still.
Take me now, take me now
Oh, oh, down to the river of Your Will.

Bridge
There is an oasis
For soldiers of the Cross,
Where we fill our vases with
Love to help us reach the lost.

Chorus
Take me now,
Take me now, take me now,
Oh, oh, down, down, down to the river.
Take me now, take me now
Where the pure clear water never runs dry.
Take me now, take me now,
Please take me to the river,
Down to the river of Your Will,-
Take me now -down to the river.
Take me,-
I just wanna be your loving' man.
So take me down to the river.
You've got me where you want me.
When you need me, well, I'm yours.
Well, You hold me so tight and You never let go.
Take me now to the river.
