Where is the rock, and where is the river of life everlasting,
flowing for ever and where is our God?

1 High on the water was Noah borne up;
judgement had fallen but safe was the ark.
High rose the mountains, but sure was their hope
as the creatures set foot on the welcoming rock.
God is our Rock, and God is our River of Life everlasting,
flowing for ever all glory to God.

2 Jacob and Moses, Elijah and John
found at the river a merciful flood;
deep through the waters came Jesus the Son
and the glory of Calvary brings us to God.
God is our Rock, and God is our River of Life everlasting,
flowing for ever all glory to God!

3 Suffolk's slow waters flow down to the sea,
Waveney river and pools of the Dove;
here in its valley let all be set free
by the rock of God's truth and the streams of his love.
Here is our Rock, and here is our River of Life everlasting,
flowing for ever: all glory to God!
