There’s a river a-rushing
It’s headed for the channel of a not so distant sea
The banks are fruitful ground, the stream is filled with life
And should we wish to swim, there’s a place of you and me

Flow Lord, make our people free
Take us to Your sea
Our hearts hear Your voice through the wind and the waves
There’s a sound that’s calling me

God of the Islands and all who smell the sea
The Atlantic, you Maritimes, rise up!
The Lord’s come to meet you
And He’s dancing!

We thought our names forgotten
Yet we knew that Your word had given us breath
A place of passion Your standard we raise
The nations, our roots, they course through our veins

The bridegroom’s coming our way
We ready ourselves to know His embrace
He’ll ride on our praise
This nation is Yours, Your dominion has come
You are Lord in these days

Dance Lord, rejoice over us with joy
Speak Lord, summon our land with Your voice
Reign Lord, open you gates and you doors
Rule Lord, this land is not ours, it’s Yours
