Down to the River

O fathers lets go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord show me the way

The video is from the Movie ,O Brother, Where Art Thou? it is the from soundtrack of music from the 2000 American film of the same name,  George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, and John Goodman.

I saw the movie and remember the song. I also have the music CD by Alison Krauss.

I saw the movie and was not that crazy about it but I loved the music! I am not a big fan of George Clooney for some reason?? Most people love him. I am just weird....Beautiful pictures. That first one is God peeking through the tree at us...

Ginny said...

What lovely pictures to depict this song! I believe I have the song,I think it's Alison Krauss & Union Station. I also saw the movie. They say it's symbolic but I forget of what!!!

These photos are really so beautiful. I don’t know in which one I enjoy more. I like that pathway along the river; what a beautiful place to take a walk! I’ve never seen that movie and the song I’ve heard for the first time. It is beautiful.
Your hibiscus is lovely and your header photo is absolutely fantastic. I also like the new look of your blog.

Hi Sandra, the hibiscus in your header is just stunning against the black background! Love your lake photos, too. I haven't seen that movie, I'll have to watch it sometime. The song is beautiful.

I just LOVE that hymn. And I've never seen that movie. I should get it from Netflix and see it. This video just may make me do it. :)

Your river views are beautiful. It looks like a great place for a quiet walk.

One of these days maybe I'll get around to watching this movie. The music is certainly beautiful.
