Down to the River to Pray- Alison Krauss Lyrics


“Down to the River to Pray” Lyrics 
by: Alison Krauss 

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 let’s go down, 
Let’s go down, come on down, 
O sisters let’s go down, 
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 robe and crown 
Good Lord, show me the way ! 

O brothers let’s go down, 
Let’s go down, come on down, 
Come on brothers let’s go down, 
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 fathers let’s go down, 
Let’s go down, come on down, 
O fathers let’s go down, 
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 robe and crown 
Good Lord, show me the way ! 

O mothers let’s go down, 
Let’s go down, don’t you want to go down, 
Come on mothers let’s go down, 
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 sinners let’s go down, 
Let’s go down, come on down, 
O sinners let’s go down, 
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 robe and crown 
Good Lord, show me the way !
