Hear us as we sing
The story of the river
Wide and clear and endless
Flowing to the sea.

Join us as we sing
The story of the river
Wide and clear and endless
Flowing to the sea.

Hear us as we sing
The story of the salmon
Swimming up the river
By the millions as they breed.

Join us as we sing
The story of the salmon
Swimming up the river
By the millions as they breed.

Hear us as we sing
The story of the eagle
Whose young rely on salmon
While they learn to fly free.

The story of the eagle
Whose young rely on salmon
While they learn to fly free.

Hear us as we sing
The story of the tall trees
That provide a home for eagles
And food for those beneath.

And food for those beneath.

Hear us as we sing
The story of the black bear
Eating nuts and berries
And scattering their seeds.

The story of the black bear
Eating nuts and berries
And scattering their seeds.

Hear us as we sing
The story of the forest
Where seeds grow into tall trees
That shelter little streams.

Join us as we sing
The story of the forest
Where seeds grow into tall trees
That shelter little streams.

Hear us as we sing
The story of the small streams
That trickle down the mountain
To the river that they feed.

Join us as we sing
The story of the small streams
That trickle down the mountain
To the river that they feed.

Hear us as we sing
The story of the river
And of the million reasons
Why we should let it be.

The story of the river
And of the million reasons
Why we should let it be.

Notes:

The core of this song came to me in a dream - and in the dream it was a video with children singing the song.

* The MP3 sample is to provide an idea of the tune; I apologize for the flat notes and occasional unintentional key changes.
