Going down to the river in this ivory robe Going down in this ivory robe Gonna wait in the water ’til the Spirit comes Gonna wait ’til the Spirit comes Been down in the water The Spirit came Been down and the Spirit came Been down to the river in this ivory robe Been down in this ivory robe Been blessed with amazing grace I been down in this world Been down in this world Been down and the Spirit came Lift me up oh Lord Oh Lord lift me up Lift me up with amazing grace Gonna sing for my Lord Oh Lord let me sing Let me sing with amazing grace I’m going down to the river in this ivory robe Going down in this ivory robe Writing lyrics/songs at the Bar tonight. I can’t carry a tune in a bucket…here’s my attempt at something like an old time gospel song. Come on and sing-a-long with dVerse poets.

Like this. It was this kind of music, mixed with work songs, blues riffs, and piano barrelhouse that set up the true American music – Jazz. Very authentic form here, and the use of repetition and rhythm makes it toe-tapping and uplifting. Well done!
ah you got a gospel song for us… i like…. could hear the music…
Lovely gospel song, I like the refrain ~
This is truly beautiful, Ron! You have really managed to capture the essence of a gospel song to the fullest! Perfection!
Yes, really great rhythm in this gospel song…brings back memories for me.

Reminds me of somthing sung by Allison Krauss — like that down to the river to pray… I heard it sung once live by her with Robert Plant and T-bone Burnett as choir… amazing.. wonder if she would sing your lyrics.
I hear clapping and jubilation in this song. 🙂
