4.  You Can’t Rush the River (2:47)

No matter how many ways modern life tries to speed things up, the most important things will continue to unfold at their own pace.  Thank goodness!


You can’t rush the river
Or the tides of the sea
Or the delicate sunrise
So please don’t rush me
1. You can’t rush a rose
As its petals unfurl
Or a ripening apple
Or the turn of the world
2. You can’t rush a full moon
Or the coming of spring
Or the growth of a baby
Or a bird on the wing
3. All good things take time
They sometimes move slow
They each have their rhythm
They each have their flow
