Scott, Hillary - The River (Come On Down) Lyrics




[Hillary Scott:]
Are you tired of shame in secrets?
Wishing you could let them go
Do you feel like an orphan searching for a home?
Well there's a love that fills what's empty
There's a place you can be changed
There's a God who knows you
He's calling out your name

Come on down to the river
Come be washed in the blood
And your sins will be forgiven by the power of His love
Come be changed by the mercy
That makes all things new
Where the lost get found
Come on down, down, down to the river
To the river

[Sharon White & Cheryl White:]
It flows like the Mississippi
From the giver of endless grace
And everyone is welcome here to dive into the waves
So leave the questions far behind you
Leave your past back on the shore
And run with wild abandoned
Wait no more

[All:]
Come on down to the river
Come be washed in the blood
And your sins will be forgiven by the power of His love
Come be changed by the mercy
That makes all things new
Where the lost get found
Come on down, down, down to the river
To the river

[Hillary Scott:]
Every burden, every scar
Let the waters wash away
No matter who you were before
You belong to Christ today
Yeah, you belong to Christ today

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good 'ol way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord, show me the way
Oh Sister, let's go down, let's go down, come on down
Oh Sister, let's go down, down to the river to pray

[All:]
Come on down to the river
Come be washed in the blood
And your sins will be forgiven by the power of His love
Come be changed by the mercy
That makes all things new
Where the lost get found
Come on down, down, down to the river
To the river

Come on down, come on down
To the river

  3. Emily Evans

    Are you tired of shame in secrets?
    Wishing you can let them go
    Do you feel you're often searching for a home?
    Well there's a love that fills what's empty
    There's a place you can be changed
    There's a God who knows you
    He's calling out your name

    Come on down to the river
    Come be washed in the blood
    And your sins will be forgiven by the power of His love
    Come be changed by the mercy
    That makes all things new
    Where the lost get found
    Come on down, down, down to the river
    To the river

    It flows like the Mississippi
    From the giver of endless grace
    And everyone is welcome here to dive into the waves
    So leave the questions far behind you
    Leave your past back on the shore
    And run with wild abandoned
    Wait no more

    Come on down to the river
    Come be washed in the blood
    And your sins will be forgiven by the power of His love
    Come be changed by the mercy

    Where the lost get found
    Come on down, down, down to the river
    To the river

    Every burden, every scar
    Let the waters wash away
    No matter who you were before
    You belong to Christ today
    Yeah, you belong to Christ today

    As I went down to the river to pray
    Studying about that good 'ol way
    And who shall wear the robe and crown
    Good Lord, show me the way
    Oh Sister, let's go down, let's go down, come on down
    Oh Sister, let's go down, down to the river to pray

    Come on down to the river
    Come be washed in the blood
    And your sins will be forgiven by the power of His love
    Come be changed by the mercy
    Makes all things new
    Where the lost get found
    Come on down, down, down to the river
    To the river

    Come on down, come on down, oh oh
    To the river, oh oh

    Phoebe Paul

    Sienna Houser we all should start calling our local radio stations to request them too. Enough callers they will!!

  15. Martina s.

    This song just warms my inside. She took my favorite song "down to the river to pray" and put it in here. Long story short that was a song me and my now deceased poppa shared together. So I thank her for making such a beautiful song that reminds me of my loving poppa but also about the word of the Lord.😘💖😇 I literally was just singing this song at the top of my lungs yesterday in the car. It wasn't pretty, but oh well I don't care I was singing for my poppa and the Lord🙌🎤

  18. L Dev

    I love this song, had to google who the background singer was (I knew that voice sounded familiar)! What a great talented family!

    Polly Tyrrell

    This is a family project (Hillary, her mom & dad, and her sister). Initially, Hillary and her family were just going to record a few songs in honor of "Paw Paw", her grandfather, and then give it as gifts to family members and friends. But they had a sense that it was meant to be a bigger project. So it "grew". And, yes, that's Hill's mom, Linda Scott, that you hear. :o)
