(Chorus)
Roll away, troubled river, roll away (roll away, roll away, roll away)
Roll away, troubled river, roll away (roll away)
I won’t be caught by your raging tide
I’m walking safely by the Master’s side
Roll away, troubled river, roll away

1. If you’re waiting for my troubles to get me down
Well, friend, there ain’t no use you hanging around
‘Cause I don’t care what comes my way
It can’t be big enough by what you hear me say
Roll away, troubled river, roll away

Repeat Chorus

2. Now I can always find a reason to be sad
And I can look around and only see the bad
But I can take what my Father sends
I can trust Him; I know He’ll understand
And He’ll take that troubled river and roll it away
