Lyrics to Down in the River to Pray
As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown,
Good Lord, show me the way!
O sisters, [brothers, fathers, mothers, sinners]
let's go down,
Let's go down, come on down;
O sisters, let's go down,
Down in the river to pray.
