Summer rains keep coming down
It’s about to swallow up this town
You get the feeling that there's trouble ahead
Folks say they've never seen
The river acting quite this mean
No one can stop it when it needs to be fed

Look at the river
The powerful river
Greater Than We Understand
Awesome in anger
Crazy with hunger
Dragging us under

[Chorus]
But you have the power
The power to heal us
Greater than we understand
Righteous in anger
Awesome with wonder
If we reach out for your hand
Yeah

To many years since the lava flow
This old mountain’s about to blow
Covering anything that gets in it's way
Not a lot that you can say or do
When the mountain wants to roll over you
But gather up the ones you love and start to pray

Look at the mountain
The powerful mountain
Greater than we understand
Awesome in anger
Crazy with hunger
Dragging us under

[Chorus]

Yeah x3

But you have the power
The power to heal us
Greater than we understand
Righteous in anger
Awesome with wonder
Greater than we understand
Yeah

As far as you or I can see
Hard times there will always be
Thank God for answers to the trouble ahead
