Hillary Scott & The Scott Family
The River (Come On Down)
[Verse 1: Hillary Scott]
Are you tired of shame in secrets?
Wishing you can let them go
Do you feel you're often searching
For a home?

[Pre-Chorus 1]
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

[Chorus: Hillary Scott]
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

[Post-Chorus]
To the river, oh
To the river, oh

[Verse 2: 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

[Pre-Chorus 2]
So leave the questions far behind you
Leave your past back on the shore
And run with wild abandoned
Wait no more

[Chorus: 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
[Post-Chorus]
To the river, oh
To the river, oh

[Bridge: 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

[Verse 3: Hillary Scott]
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

[Chorus: 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

[Post-Chorus]
To the river, oh
To the river, oh

[Outro: All]
Come on down, come on down, oh
To the river, oh
