Where is it we're going?
Down to the river of sorrow
Where are we now rowing
Here on the river of sorrow?

Now, its on to the sea
On to the sea
It's on to the endless
Beautiful sea

The tears from all our crying
They formed the river of sorrow
Our fears, our doubts, our dying
fill up the river of sorrow

Now, its on to the sea
On to the sea
It's on to the endless
Beautiful sea

Our boat upon the flood
Built of wood and nails and blood
Is strong and sure and grand
and guided by the wounded hands

There is beauty on the shoreline
Along the river of sorrow
But we can't spend any more time
On the banks of the river of sorrow

Now, its on to the sea
On to the sea
It's on to the endless
Beautiful sea

Who will not ignore us
Here on the river of sorrow?
The one who went before us
Here on the river of sorrow

Calling come to the sea
Come to the sea
He calls come to the endless
Beautiful sea

Calling come to the sea
Come to the sea
He calls come to the endless
Beautiful sea
