Evans Ighodalo sets off his recording career with the release
of his debut single “Drink From The River”, a song that expresses his desire of
God who is at work in His life; Produced by MacRock and Greenwox.

According to the Scriptures, Jesus says of whoever believes
in Him, “out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”.

“I wrote this song in 2013 after fellowship at a friend’s House James
Umokoro, craving for the indwelling and more of the presence of the Holy
The river of the water of Life brings everything you need and will ever
need in Life, ‘cos in Him we live, move and have our being, we can never get
enough of Him, we can do nothing except by Him, so we drink from the River.”

Lord I come before your presence
With a faithful and a grateful heart
Humble bow before your throne
For in you my world is complete

In you I live move have my being
Your love it makes me strong
Fill me to overflow
I can never get enough of you

Drink from the river
Of the water of life

As the deer pants for the water
So my soul it longs to be with you
In your presence I find love
I find joy and peace for my soul

In you I live move have my being
Your love it makes me strong
Fill me to overflow
I can never get enough of you

Drink from the river
Of the water of life
