Will you take me to the river?
Will you take me there today?
Will you wash away the blood?
Will you join with me and pray?
Pray for peace among the suff’ring
Pray for tragedy to end
Pray for their sweet comforting
Pray for love till world’s end.
Will you join me at the river?
Will you meet me there today?
Will you help me cleanse the blood?
Will you meet with me to pray?
