River of Life was inspired by Psalm 1 from the Holy Bible. It reads:
Blessed is the man
who walks not in the council of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
but his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
