Steven Curtis Chapman Dive Lyrics

Last updated: 03/18/2013 01:19:56 PM

The long-awaited rains have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground
and carved their way to where the wild and rushing river can be found
And like the rains I have been carried here to where the river flows, yeah
My heart is racin' and my knees are weak as I walk to the edge
I know there is no turning back once my feet have left the ledge
And in the rush I hear a voice, it's telling me it's time to
Take the leap of faith
So here I go

I'm diving in
I'm going deep
In over my head I wanna be
Caught in the rush
Lost in the flow
In over my head I wanna go
The river's deep
The river's wide
The river's water is alive
So sink or swim
I'm diving in
I'm diving in

There is a supernatural power in this mighty river's flow
It can bring the dead to life, and it can fill an empty soul
And give a heart the only thing worth livin' and worth dyin' for, yeah
But we will never know the awesome power of the grace of God
Until we let ourselves get swept away into this holy flood
So if you'll take my hand, we'll close our eyes and count to three
And take the leap of faith
Come on let's go

God is doing a new thing in me ! | Reviewer: Phyllis Wilkins | 3/18/13

God has been helping me to come out of a season of lack and drought it has been challenging but I'm overcoming some fears as
I step into this new thing that God is doing in my life and in the life of my family members. As I was sitting here praying some of the words to the song "Dive" came up in my spirit I got so excited for God to let me know that it's time to dive in and recieve all the he has for me my family. It's truly is a new season for me and I'm diving in. Thank you Jesus

Mistake | Reviewer: Nehemiah | 2/6/12

I've been lookin for this song ever since i went to America and heard it on the radio. As soon as I heard it i felt an attachment to it. I love it.
Just a little tweak to the lyrics you say: "And give a heart the only thing worth livin'...."it should have "our" instead of "a"
But overall God bless you!

church camp | Reviewer: dava | 8/29/08

i have been going to a church camp every summer for the past four years and during worship everynight, after we have a regular prayer and the cabins or teams do a scit, and then we sing songs. we sing this song so much within one week. its just the kind of song that can get anyone and everyone dancing, and thats exactly what we do. we dance. its just a great time and this song brings back so many memories everytime i hear it. god bless.

Best car trip song ever | Reviewer: Emily | 7/7/08

Oh my goodness, I turned on a christian radio station in the car when I was going through a really bad day and this was the first song I heard. I just wanted to leap out of the car and start dancing, it immediatly lifted my spirit and reminded me that God gave us an amazing life to be lived to the full and for him!

Great Song | Reviewer: Nick B. | 1/22/08

This is a really cool song. I used to think Christian music was only the songs we sang in church. In our youth group, however, we began listening to songs like 'DIVE', and they're great. Our youth group decided to make this song our theme song for the year. It's really great.

A MUST listen!! | Reviewer: Michaela | 1/2/08

I was trying to find a song that wasn't like regular church music and is catchy and fun. I was listening to the radio and WHAM-0 it hit me like a ton of bricks! The song I had long awaited to hear. I couldn't stop moving I was ALL over the house. I was hooked I wanted more! So the next day I bought all of Steven Curtis Chapman's CDs and I LOVE every one of them!!! His music lifts you up and just makes you wanna dance and cry and ENJOY LIFE!!! God bless you I hope you enjoy it too!
