Gather by the River
by Davell Crawford
as performed on Our New Orleans - A Benefit Album
We will gather
at the river
with each other
'cause you're my brother.
Dip our souls
in the water
for the healing
of each other.
And be saved
freed from sin
to where freedom lies.
To fly away
from the land
because we can
because we can.
