nagareyuku kawa no you ni
yureru nami no you ni
kagayakite wa kirameki ai
taemanaku susunde yuku

hiroi sora no shita
midori no chikyuu no ue
taiyou e chikarazuyoku
daichi no ue tatazunde
saiteiru hana no you ni

kagayaite wa chitteyuku
kono chiisana hana you ni

hito wa ikite yuku

moeagaru honoo mo
kiete yuku tomoshibi mo

sorezore ni ikiru jinsei
moetsukiru sono toki made

chikarazuyoku ikitai
chikarazuyoku ikitai

English translation

The way the river runs on
The way the waves undulate
Glowing with brilliance
Going on endlessly

I want to live like the river

Under the vast sky
On this green planet
Wholeheartedly turned toward the sun
Standing tall upon this earth
Like a blooming flower

The brilliance scatters
Like this tiny flower

People live on

As the burning blaze does
As the vanishing embers of the torch do

Each living out their own lifetime
Until that time when their flame dies

I want to live wholeheartedly
I want to live wholeheartedly

Japanese

流れゆく川のように
揺れる波のように
輝いてはきらめき合い
絶え間なくすすんでゆく

川のように生きたい

広い空の下
緑の地球の上
太陽へ力強く
大地の上たたずんで
咲いている花のように

輝いては散ってゆく
この小さな花のように

人は生きてゆく

燃え上がる炎も
消えてゆく燈も

それぞれに生きる人生
燃え尽きるその時まで

力強く生きたい
力強く生きたい
