CHORUS
Oh Still Waters Keeper of my secrets from long ago
Oh Still Waters Hold me in your darkness and don’t let go

I will drink in the sorrows of those whose tears become the river
I will be their solace and their calm
Bless all their tomorrows as their souls slip into slivers
And sing to them a sparkling water psalm

CHORUS
Oh Still Waters Keeper of my secrets from long ago
Oh Still Waters Hold me in your darkness and don’t let go

Let the minnows nibble at my fingers
When the salmon spawn I will rejoice at their deliverance
Feel the swallows sweep and watch the water-spiders’ whispers
And listen to coyotes cry & calls

Bridge
Where the water flows you will see me go – see me go
Under ice & snow – You will see me flow –
You will know You will know

Now I lay my heart down in this river
Aching for a way to turn back time
If I could only find a way to quiet all the voices
That told me I should have listened, should have changed, capitulated
That told me I should not be who I am

CHORUS
Oh Still Waters Keeper of my secrets from long ago
Oh Still Waters Hold me in your darkness
Shroud me in your stillness
Hold me in your darkness - and don’t let go
