The river is waiting
Come rise up
A new day is dawning
Come rise up
We be salin' at first light
Come Gather
Set our course for the crossing
Together

[Chorus:]
Sail on
Sail on
The river is waiting
Sail on

The river is waiting
I'm ready
To slip from this island
I'm ready
Gonna leave all my sorrow
Behind me
Lift my face to the new day
That's rising

[Chorus:]
