Lyrics: 

This river is a mighty one;
I have to trust its flow
But if you asked me where it's taking us,
I wouldn't say I know.
But I will go there willingly;
she's never led me astray.
And I've only be bruised
when I've refused to get out of my way.

So, I wouldn't stop the rain.
No, I wouldn't stop the rain.
What good would it do?
And I wouldn't trade the pain,
or mess with the math that created the path
that eventually led to you , my love.
I give you my love.

And when I say love
I mean a love that will stay love
through every change that could betray love
and the vicissitudes of time.
I mean mature love,
unconditional and pure love.
The kind of love I feel with your love,
I want you to feel with mine.

And if I had it to do over now
I am certain of one thing -
when the carousel came back around
I would still reach for that ring.
I would still reach for your arms, my love,
despite the pain that reach could bring.
I would still say Ôyes' to life and love
and accept the offering.

And I wouldn't stop the sun.
No, I wouldn't stop the sun -
What good would it do?
And I would rather stand than run
and squarely face the warmth and grace
of a blessing when it comes, my love.
I give you my love.

And when I say love
I mean a love that will stay love
through every change that could betray love
and the vicissitudes of time.
I mean mature love,
unconditional and pure love.
The kind of love I feel with your love,
I want you to feel with mine.
