The River brian doerksen
To the river I am going
Bringing sins I cannot bear

Come and cleanse me, come forgive me
Lord I need to meet you there

In these waters, healing mercy
Flows with freedom from despair

I am going, to that river
Lord I need to meet you there

Precious Jesus, I am ready

To surrender every care

Take my hand now, lead me closer

Lord I need to meet you there

Come and join us, in the river
Come find life beyond compare

He is calling, He is waiting
Jesus longs to meet you there

tony, today i stood and watched you make a public confession of your faith in Jesus Christ. 
i cried as i watched you come up out the water with all the symbolism that mingled with the remnants of the river pouring down off of your face. 
i cried as i watched the joy on your face; the peace, the light that radiated off of you from this decision.
i love you.  i was so proud of you today.  so thankful that i had the honor to stand on the banks of a river and watch you identify yourself with Jesus before friends, family and most importantly our children.

i am so incredibly proud to be your wife and to call you my husband.
