The Athabasca River is mighty indeed!!!

lyrics

I can see what these words can't find
in the rocks
and soil of this land
from the verdant creeks
to the mountain peaks
we are left
with a part
that lingers gently resting
in our hearts

Oh mighty Athabasca
tumbling to the sea
rushing river
carving water
cloaked in mystery
from the tip of the icefield
to the shallow plains you see
what's come to be
from the sky to the sea
your ever-changing realm
the legacy
that you've left for me.

In the night
you're a thousand-million shadows
lit by stars and the moonlight
In the daytime
you're a silver ribbon
stretching for as far
as my eyes can see
through oceans of green

If we could live each and every day
as the river flows to the sea
we would find our time
is not as short as we make
it to be
we would find that time is
on our side
on our side

In the night
you're a thousand-million shadows
lit by stars and the moonlight
In the daytime
you're a silver ribbon
stretching for as far
as my eyes can see
through oceans of green

In the night
you're a thousand-million shadows
lit by stars and the moonlight
In the daytime
you're a silver ribbon
stretching for as far
as my eyes can see through oceans of gre
