Lyrics

O my sisters won't you come with me, I'm going down to the river Lord let the Ghost wash over me
O my brothers won't you come with me, I'm going down to the river Lord put this weary soul at ease

I will see you on the other side and love there will be darkness before I see the light
Though I may be fearful on that my final day, I know you'll be waiting to help me find my way

All of my kin who have died and gone before rest now in peace upon that distant shore
I know that my time will come someday, but I rest assured in the midst of grace

I am Barabbas the man whom they set free my Lord carried the weight of brutal pardoning
I will not cast this mercy aside I know I'll meet my maker on the other side


Chorus

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord:
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored
And lo above the Earth on that final fateful day, I'll fly away

Chorus

O my sisters won't you come with me, I'm going down to the river Lord let the Ghost wash over me
O my brothers won't you come with me, I'm going down to the river Lord put this weary soul at ease
O my mother won't you come with me, I'm going down to the river Lord let the Ghost wash over me
O my father won't you come with me, I'm going down to the river Lord put this weary soul at ease

Chorus x2
