for Clif Major and Patrick McElmurray

“He leadeth me beside still waters....”

Burning waters called my name out
Fire burns me clean down thru my bones
Pretty bottles look so innocent in barrooms
Deceitful beauty, feet press on

I am fearful of that river
Dark and angry roars so deep
Filled with fire, no way round it
My fear so great, my faith so weak

Chorus:
Lord, please lead me side still waters
In this valley, help me not to fall
Lord you know I’m fragile ‘round temptation, so
Help me be still when burning waters call

Break

When I’m still I can remember
There’s a gentle spirit leading me
My grasping hands release and open
Then still waters reveal to me

Chorus:

Lord, please lead me side still waters
In this valley, help me not to fall
Lord you know I’m fragile ‘round temptation, so
Help me be still when burning waters call
Lord, help me be still when burning waters call
