Down To The River To Pray

print

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord show me the way

   Oh sisters let’s go down
   Let’s go down come on down
   Oh sisters let’s go down
   Down to the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord show me the way

   Oh brothers let’s go down
   etcetera

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord show me the way

   Oh fathers let’s go down
   etcetera

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord show me the way

   Oh mothers let’s go down
   etcetera

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord show me the way

   Oh sinners let’s go down
   etcetera

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord show me the way
