‘Down to the River to Pray’

This is just a good old hymn, the first one that came to me today–Down to the River to Pray, sung by Alison Krauss.

I declare the hymn shop open for the day.

There’s a haunting quality to this old hymn, don’t you think? Down to the River to Pray, sung by Alison Krauss.

This was the first hymn that popped into my head this morning–Down to the River to Pray, an old favorite sung by Alison Krauss. It makes me think of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch, in the Book of Acts.

I used to hear Alison Krauss singing this sweet, old-fashioned hymn on the radio–Down to the River to Pray. In this part of the country I don’t think people were ever much into baptism by full immersion–although that’s the way John the Baptist did it, in the Bible. The old black-and-white photos have a haunting quality.
