1 O brothers, let's go down, let's go down, let's go down,
O brothers, let's go down, down in the valley to pray.

Refrain:
As I went down in the valley to pray,
Studying about that good old way.
O who shall wear the starry crown,
Good Lord, show me the way,
As I went down in the valley to pray,
Studying about that good old way.
O who shall wear the starry crown,
Good Lord, show me the way.

O preachers, let's go down, down in the valley to pray. [Refrain]

By-an'-by we'll all go down, down in the valley to pray. [Refrain]
