This is a gospel style piece with a wonderfully constructed build up in intensity throughout the song. The image of the river in Judea is really a metaphor for music. The text of the song then deals with the power of music and its effect on life. It’s enjoyable to listen to, kids love it and learn it quickly, it is respectful of a child’s voice and I recommend it highly.
