Lyrics:

 

There’s a Mighty River

 

There’s a mighty river, flowing to the sea

We know where it is going

We sail it, you and me

It’s a wide deep river

But it didn’t start so strong

It carries hopes and fears of people

In its current all belong

 

Chorus:

The mighty river pours from the mountains

and across the plain

Into a sea of humanity

Where all share hope and pain

The power of the water, the river, and the sea

It cannot be denied, the people shall be free

Free from injustice that that simply cannot stand

Mountains will be worn down to tiny grains of sand

And in the end justice shall rule throughout the land

 

Across the distant plain

The mountains rise so high

Implacable and cold

A barrier no one can get by

There are people trapped in canyons

They beat their hands against stone

‘Til they’re battered and bloody

They’re fighting all alone

But their tears are not shed in vain

They drip between the rocks

Into a well of pressure and pain

Deep below they’re locked

But pressures cause tears to surge

Beneath the surface, upward, ‘til they emerge

On the top of the mountain, forbidding and tall

Those tears become pristine springs

With the purest water of all

 

Chorus:

The mighty river pours from the mountains

and across the plain

Into a sea of humanity

Where all share hope and pain

The power of the water, the river, and the sea

It cannot be denied, the people shall be free

Free from injustice that that simply cannot stand

Mountains will be worn down to tiny grains of sand

And in the end justice shall rule throughout the land

 

Bubbling little springs, crystal clear tears

Trickling down each mountain, the cure for all our fears

Wending through mountain seams or carving their own tracks

One by one these streams combine, there’s no going back

The streams all bring refreshment

The streams show us the way

We follow and join others

Who hear what we say 

Our stories blend in the river

The river brings us peace

Then the river flows to the sea

Where all stories are released

 

Chorus:

The mighty river pours from the mountains

and across the plain

Into a sea of humanity

Where all share hope and pain

The power of the water, the river, and the sea

It cannot be denied, the people shall be free

Free from injustice that that simply cannot stand

Mountains will be worn down to tiny grains of sand

And in the end justice shall rule throughout the land

 

The springs are hard to see and hear,

but they flow like single tears

Then connect and become a force

So it is with us

Alone we scream until we’re hoarse

But together stories become songs

Side by side we’ll right the wrongs

And we raise our voices

To demand more choices

One by one streams will combine

Our power will grow, we won’t be confined

The canyons will echo with our songs

And mountains will know that we are strong

 

Chorus:

The mighty river pours from the mountains

and across the plain

Into a sea of humanity

Where all share hope and pain

The power of the water, the river, and the sea

It cannot be denied, the people shall be free

Free from injustice that that simply cannot stand

Mountains will be worn down to tiny grains of sand

And in the end justice shall rule throughout the land
