Riversong


Verse 1

River rushing down the mountainside, river racing with the breeze.
Lead me through the forest and the trees.

River rolling on a rocky bed, river running 'round the bend,
Take me to a quiet journey's end.

 

Chorus

River, run me to the ocean. River take me to the sea.

River take me to a distant shore.
River run! Set my spirit free.

 

Verse 2
River roaring through a craggy glen, river rushing to the tide,
You will be my refuge and my guide.
River reaching out for many miles, though the journey will be long,
Grant the will and courage to the strong.

 

Chorus

 

Bridge
Even in the darkness, even in the night,

Lead me through the shadows, to the morning light!

 

Coda
River, run me to the ocean. River take me to the sea.

River take me to a distant shore.
River run! River run!
River run! Set me spirit free.

River rushing down the mountainside. x2 (T&B)
Deep river. x2 (Alto)
Set me free.
