The Water is Wide / When Love is Found 

06 The Water Is Wide _ When Love Is Found.mp3

The water is wide; I can't cross over
And neither I have wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I

There is a ship that sails the sea
She's loaded deep, as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
And know not how I sink or swim

When love is found and hope comes home
Sing and be glad that two are one
When love explodes and fills the sky
Praise God and share our Maker's joy

Praise God for love, praise God for life
In age or youth, through all of life
Lift up your hearts, let love be fed
Through death and life, in broken bread

Our love is strong, our love is light
Carried on waves of morning bright
From far beyond, around the bend
I hold you, lover, sweetest friend
