River of Jordan Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I traveled the banks of the River of Jordan
To find where it flows to the sea
I looked in the eyes of the cold and the hungry
And I saw I was looking at me

I wanted to know if life had a purpose
And what it all means in the end
In the silence I listened to voices inside me
And they told me again and again

There is only one river, there is only one sea
And it flows through you, and it flows through me
There is only one people, we are one and the same
We are all one spirit, we are all one name
We are the father, mother, daughter and son
From the dawn of creation, we are one, we are one, we are one

Well, every blade of grass on the mountain
Every drop in the sea
Oh, every cry of a newborn baby
Every prayer to be free

Every hope at the end of a rainbow
Every song ever sung
Is a part of the family of woman and man
And that means everyone

We are only one river, we are only one sea
And it flows through you, and it flows through me
We are only one people, we are one and the same
We are all one spirit, we are all one name
We are the father, mother, daughter and son
From the dawn of creation, we are one, we are one
We are one, we are one

We are only one river, we are only one sea
And it flows through you, and it flows through me
We are only one people, we are one and the same
We are all one spirit, we are all one name
We are the father, mother, daughter and son
From the dawn of creation, we are one, we are one
We are one, we are one
