Song of the Week – “There Is A River”

Max and David Sapp wrote a song in 1969 that would become a classic in Southern Gospel Music!  “There Is A River” is the name of that song and it is unlikely that they could have imagined how popular the song would become.  The original mainstream recording of the song came in 1972 by Jimmy Swaggart.  Since that time, artists such as Greater Vision, the Gaither Vocal Band, the Cathedral Quartet, the Heritage Singers and many others have recorded this song.  The popularity and the longevity of this song is because of the powerful message that “there is a river, that never shall run dry.” Final Harvest tackled this song on their “Never Alone” project and it quickly became one of the favorites amongst Final Harvest fans everywhere.  We trust that you will enjoy “There Is A River,” this week’s song of the week!
