The river is waiting, come rise up
A new day is coming, come rise up

They'll be sailing at first light, come gather
Said I force for the crossing, together

Sail on, sail on, river, sail on
Sail on, sail on, river, sail on

The river is waiting, I'm ready
To step from this island, I'm ready
Gonna leave all my sorrows, behind me
Lift my face to a new day, I'm rising

[Chorus: x4]
