The wind is blowing down the quiet river
A shining road that carries you alone
Baby boy, my love will last forever
If you're to live, I must give you up to God

I know our God will guide, protect, and keep you
Teach you faith and hold you by the heart
Though your mother's heart is broken by your leaving
Her Father knows just who he is and who you are

[Chorus:]
I wish that life wasn't always ending up this way
With Heaven's love at stake and hell to pay
But you in God's loving plan might be the missing part
You must live
So I give you to his heart

The wind is blowing down the silent river
A shining road that leaves me all alone
A life for you's worth losing you forever
Some day we'll stand in God's fair land, forever home

[Chorus x 2]
