    This song was especially written for the film Morality for Youth.

    [Voice 1] So He set me on my journey down the river.

    [Voice 2] And He said He would always pilot me.

    [Voice 1] He showed me the way to reach the shore.

    [Voice 2] He taught me the song of destiny.

    [Voice 1] I will sing a song, a song of love;

    sing praise to Him who rules above.

    For as fierce as waves and rocks may be,

    He can guide my destiny.

    [Voice 1] I will sing a song, a song of love;

    sing praise to Him who rules above.

    For as fierce as waves and rocks may be,

    He can guide my destiny.

    Sing, sing a song of destiny.

    [Voice 2] I will sing as I travel down the river.

    I will sing on my journey to the sea.

    For as fierce as waves and rocks may be,

    I will choose my destiny.

    Sing, sing a song of destiny.
