I gasp in fear as I for the first time see

The frightening, frothy foam around me

With selfish fright, I see the swiftness of the water

Flowing steadily to you, my father

 

As my vessel sinks beneath the torrent

I cry out in pain truly abhorrent

Suddenly, my will and woes begin to falter

Flowing steadily to you, my father

 

Sweet breath fills lungs long unused

As my knees become greatly abused

A quiet thank you echoes across calm water

Flowing steadily to you, my father
