Going down country

Going down country.

The day has come we two are off
To the open land of trees
We’re going where it’s beautiful
So filled with mystery
We’re off to Blackwood River
To sit upon her banks
So early in the morning hours
As I give prayers of thanks

We’re just going for a short stay
But that’s enough for me
We’re off down south of country
Where all life’s mystery
Is waiting there to speak to me
And show me who I am
As I sit there by the river.
Let life overflow her dam

I will feel the whisper flowing
In those lovely hours of dawn
I will meditate each morning
 When each new day is born
As the river flows beside me
Oh yes, we’re going away
We’re off to see lord nature
 Give worship each new day.
