Track Name: I'm Going Down to the River
I'm Going Down to the River
@ William L. Mitchell, 2013

I'm going down, down to the river
To give my heart to my Lord
I going down, down to the river
to accept the promise of God

I need to be baptized by Jesus
by his water, spirit and blood
O preacher take me down to the river
then let his spirit wash me clean

This world promised, promised so much
Yet every promise was broken
Then as I fell, I fell into shame
The world just laughed at my fall

Still I roamed so far and wide
I just ignored wisdom's call
Just kept on walking the fool's road
Until you led me, led back home

I need to be baptized by Jesus
by his water, spirit and blood
O preacher take me down to the river
then let his spirit wash me clean

Wide the gate that leads to destruction
I wandered lost for so long
Narrow the road that leads to life
Still the shepherd is calling us home

He promised me mercy and grace
He promised me life everlasting
So I'm going down, down to the river
Why don't you come, come with me

So I'm going down to the river
Why don't you come, come with me
I going down, down to river
to accept the promise of God

I need to be baptized by Jesus
by his water, spirit and blood
O preacher take me down to the river
then let his spirit wash me clean
