I am looking for the lyrics to a song called peace like a river.  Doyle Lawson sang it on their Gospel Radio Gems album and I cannot make out all of the words.

Hi Mikeylikesit,

Not sure if this is the same as what Doyle Lawson sang--it's a classic old Spiritual:

Verse 1:
I’ve got peace like a river,
I’ve got peace like a river,
I’ve got peace like a river in my soul,
I’ve got peace like a river,
I’ve got peace like a river,
I’ve got peace like a river in my soul.

Verse 2:
I’ve got love like an ocean,
I’ve got love like an ocean,
I’ve got love like an ocean in my soul,
I’ve got love like an ocean,
I’ve got love like an ocean,
I’ve got love like an ocean in my soul.

Verse 3:
I’ve got joy like a fountain,
I’ve got joy like a fountain,
I’ve got joy like a fountain in my soul,
I’ve got joy like a fountain,
I’ve got joy like a fountain,
I’ve got joy like a fountain in my soul.

Hope this is the one you were thinking of...if not, let me know and I can dig further.

Thanks
Steve

Thats not it.  it goes like this

peace like a river,
flows through my soul
I've been forgiven,
cleansed and made whole

Thats the lead.  the countermelody at the same goes

peace like a river, peace like a river,
flows through my soul, flows through my soul....

Ah, I see. Yes, I figured the spiritual was too easy

Try this one:

Words and music:
Lead: Charles Davis (verses) and C.D. Davis (chorus)

Lyrics:

Peace (peace like a river) like a river (peace like a river)
Flows (flows through my soul) through my soul (flows through my soul)
I've (I've been forgiven) been forgiven (I've been forgiven)
Cleansed (cleansed and made whole) and made whole (cleansed and made whole)

Chorus:
Peace like a river so gently is flowing
How sweet to my soul is this marvelous peace
Sweeter and sweeter each day it is growing
Like billows of glory it never shall cease

Filled (filled with the spirit) with the spirit (filled with the spirit)
I (I am so glad) am so happy (happy and glad)
Jesus (Jesus has given) has given (sweetly has given)
Wonderful (wonderful peace) peace (wonderful peace)

Peace (peace gently flowing) gently flowing (peace gently flowing)
Sweet (sweet and divine) and divine (sweet and divine)
This (this the assurance) the assurance (this the assurance)
Jesus (Jesus is mine) is mine (Jesus is mine)

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Verse 2

Glory forever to Jesus my Savior
For wonderful, marvelous, heavenly peace
Peace overflowing much sweeter is growing
What wonderful, wonderful peace

The movie "The Gospel" does have a Soundtrack CDhttp://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=namethathymnl-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;, but unfortunately, the CD does not contain Cynthia Simon's "Peace Like a River".

The best way to hear it is to get the DVD of the moviehttp://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=namethathymnl-20&l=ur2&o=1" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;.

I've heard mixed reviews of the movie, but by all accounts, the music is spectacular.

steveliu, when i try to download the song using charles davis as the artist i still can't find the song Peace Like a River.  Please give me an artist name so I can download the song

Hi Guest,

I don't know of a place where you can download the song, but you can visit the Web site of The Sounds of Glory, a fantastic acapella group which Charles Davis is a member of. They have a CD that has this song that you can purchase on their site.

The CD that this song is on is called Prodigal Son. Ordering information is here. They have a LOT of great songs and hymns on their CDs...I highly recommend them.

God bless,
Steve

Unfortunatly, that's all I have so far. I got these lyrics from first listening to the DVD and then downloading samples from the internet from different sources. In other words, I tried to put the pieces of the puzzle together. I hope this helps.  -Cedric

After searching for ever for "Peace Like a River" and "When Seasons Change", I finally came across the production notes for the movie, which indicated that 5 of Kirk Franklin's songs were written specifically for The Gospel, so I can only surmise that these are two of them.

That said, I still don't understand why they would leave the two greatest songs in the entire movie out of the soundtrack and replace them with songs not even in the movie, unless it had something to do with writer's or publishing rights ... you never know these days with the music industry.

From what I understand, there is a second, different soundtrack that includes When Seasons Change, but unfortunately not Peace Like a River.  Highly dissapointing, but it looks like that is how it is.
