Some people seek adventure
Some people long for rest
Still others search for wisdom
When our Land's put to the test

Tears of challenge, joy, and love
The river knows them well
And no matter what we're dreaming of
The river takes us in its spell
With timeless tales to tell
What tales to tell

I've got a wish tonight
I've got a hope for us to share
And as those rivers flow
I dream of being with you where
We can finally be
One nation truly free
Flowing the river
Flowing like the many rivers
Flowing like the many rivers
To one sea
One sea

Some rivers will run slowly
Some race to reach the end
The course straight as an arrow
Or it snakes from bend to bend

Through long nights, through golden days
The river journeys on
In a winter chill or summer haze
The river bids our cares be gone
There's safe harbor come the dawn
Let's breathe the dawn

And I've got a wish tonight
I've got a hope for us to share
And as those rivers flow
I dream of being with you where
We can finally be
One nation truly free
Flowing the river
Flowing like the many rivers
Flowing like the many rivers
To one sea

Like ribbons through the land
They connects us to each other
When we seek to understand
The river comforts like a mother
And along the river's shore
We all become part of the story

Oh, I've got a wish tonight (I've got a wish)
I've got a hope for us to share
And as those rivers flow
I dream of being with you where
We can finally be
One nation truly free
Flowing the river
Flowing like the many rivers
Flowing like the many rivers
To one sea

(The river tells a story)
(Of a people and a land)
