as I went down to the river to pray, studying about that good ole way and who shall wear the robe and crown, good Lord show me the way
oh sinners lets go down, lets go down, come on down, oh sinners lets go down, down in the river to pray
matthew 16: 24Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. 26What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? 27For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.in his kingdom."
