lyrics

I.
Oh, sisters lets go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, sisters lets go down.

Oh, brothers lets go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, brothers lets go down –

down by the river to pray.

II.
Down by the river we'll pray all day.
We'll pray all day till our hearts are changed

Deep in the water we'll bathe all day, down covered by the blood
till the mud's washed away.

and over by the tree we'll sit in the shade,
reading tiny paper books, as our minds are shaped.

III.
Oh, mothers lets go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, mothers let’s go down.

Oh, fathers let’s go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, fathers let’s go down –

down by the river to pray

IV.
Oh, sinners let’s go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, sinners let’s go down –

A Holiday at the water’s edge
with the one raised up from the dead –

A Holiday at the water’s edge.
