HEALING RIVER

1964 Fred Hellerman & Fran Minkoff, published in The Collected Reprints From Sing Out! Volumes 7-12

O healing river, send down your waters,
Send down your waters upon this land;
O healing river, send down your waters,
To wash the blood from off the sand.

This land is parching, this land is thirsting,
No seed is growing in the barren ground,
This land is parching, this land is thirsting,
O Healing river send your waters down,
Let the seed of freedom awake and flourish,
Let the deep roots nourish, let the tall stalks rise
Let the seed of freedom awake and flourish,
Proud leaves uncurling against the skies.

O healing river, send down your waters,
Send down your waters upon this land;
O healing river, send down your waters,
To wash the blood from off the sand.
