DOWN IN THE RIVER TO PRAY

(USA)

(Chant de baptême - Arrgt. R Nageli)
Chant Médium en Mi (Les mots changeants d’un
couplet à l’autre sont indiqués en gras)

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol’ 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 ol’ way
And who shall wear the robe & 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 ol’ 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 ol’ way
And who shall wear the robe and crown ?
Good Lord show me the way
O mothers let’s go down
Come on down, don’t you wanna go down ?
Come on mothers
, let’s go down
Down in the river to pray

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