1 As flows the river, calm and deep,
In silence toward the sea,
So floweth ever,
And ceaseth never,
The love of God for me.

Refrain:
As flows the river, calm and deep,
In silence toward the sea,
So floweth ever, and ceaseth never,
The love of God to me.

2 He kindly keepeth those He loves,
Secure from every fear.
From the eye that weepeth
For one that sleepeth,
He gently dries the tear. [Refrain]

3 What peace He bringeth to my heart,
Deep as the soundless sea.
How sweetly singeth
The soul that clingeth
My loving Lord, to Thee. [Refrain]

4 How calm at even sinks the sun
Beyond the clouded west;
So, tempest driven into the haven,
I reach the longed for rest. [Refrain]
