Co-written with my friend, Danny Cronk, this song chronicles the struggles of faith.


By D. Cronk / A. Ashley

Noah told his brother to “get up onto my boat”
I guess I should've listened to all those words he spoke
Cause I went down to the river to pray and to meet the Lord
And he came, not with peace
He came to me with a sword

Moses told pharaoh “let my people go”
I guess I should've listened to all those words he wrote
Now the rover’s flowing blood and it's not that I don't care
But I've been looking for truth and I think I lost my faith somewhere

My pride got the best of me at the Tower of Babel
We were cursed with confusion there for being unfaithful
Now the river’s flowing blood down here in the name of the Lord
He came not with peace, no he came to me with a sword
