lyrics

Between the glades of jade grass
and the steppes of earth and stone
where the sky was pure and blue
there ran a river so strong and proud

There bore a child of wolf and faun
He fed from the faun and hunted with the wolf
Befriended the falcon and sung with the wind
He was wild and grew to be strong

River child, wild and free!
Come my brothers, and soon you'll see
Grace of the faun and cunning of the hound
No one knows where the child is bound

River child, wild and free
Come my brothers, and soon you will see
Grace of the faun and cunning of the hound
No one knows where the child is bound

In these holy plains
a divine child plays
Forging the path
For all of us to follow

O, gather round my brothers and lay witness to this gift from the gods
A golden child born of the wild lay praise upon him and may he gift us with seeded blood
Nature protects him, the Welkin guides him, the boy painted all in mud

River child, wild and free!
Come my brothers, and soon you will see
Grace of the faun and cunning of the hound
No one knows where the child is bound

River child, wild and free
Come my brothers, and soon you will see
Grace of the faun and cunning of the hound
No one knows where the child is bound

Between the glades of jade grass
and the steppes of earth and stone
where the sky was pure and blue
there ran a river so strong and proud

There bore a child of wolf and faun
He fed from the faun and hunted with the wolf
Befriended the falcon and sung with the wind
He was wild and grew to be strong
