    You have asked me why have I come here
    And rightly so
    I have come with a message to tell
    Something that you should know
    Now is the time to leave Babylon
    We must persist until the victory is won
    Just heed my voice, if you will wont you please
    Come to the Jordan and get down on your knees


    Come to the river,
    Oh yes you must all consent
    Come to the river,
    Please hear my call to repent

    You have asked me why I have come here
    from the wilderness
    I have come here with something to tell
    Just how much you've been blessed
    I come to you as a really good friend
    to preach the coming of remission of sin
    So gather round, you've got nothing to lose
    Come hear the preaching of the coming good news


    Come to the river
    I'll wash away your sins
    Come to the river
    Oh wont you come right on in

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~transition
    DONT YOU, DONT YOU, DONT YOU, DONT YOU!
    DONT YOU BE LIKE KING HEROD
    WHO STOLE AWAY HIS BROTHER'S WIFE
    HE CHEATS ALL THE WIDOWS AND ORPHANS
    SURELY HE WILL LOSE HIS LIFE
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Though evil men be all over the place
    Just take the evil, throw it back in their face
    give praise to GOD for the coming of peace
    Then think about all the pain HE'LL release


    Come to the river
    I'll make it easy for you
    Come to the river
    Just ask me what you should do

    WHAT SHALL WE DO?
    Those of you with more than one coat
    give it to him that dont have none
    WHAT SHALL WE DO?
    Those of you with plenty to eat
    give to the poor untill their eatings done
    WHAT SHALL WE DO?
    Keep sabbath holy and keep the laws
    cause it will bring the people peace
    WHAT SHALL WE DO?
    Love one another with all of your heart
    from the greatest, to the least

    I know that some, on evil were weaned
    It will be hard just to wash you clean
    Just come to me cause the time is at hand
    prepare the coming of the son of man


    Come to the river
    Here comes the chosen one
    Come to the river
    GOD'S own begotten son
