Wednesday Music Meditation January 20, 2021

Hello Trinity family,
Happy inauguration day! To celebrate this special occasion, I chose a very American hymn for today’s meditation: “Down in the River to Pray” arranged by Lorie Line. “Down in the River to Pray” was first published in 1867 as part of Slave Songs of the United States. This hymn also shares a melody with a traditional Native American song. I pray that in this season of change for our nation, we remember and celebrate our common heritage by caring for our brothers and sisters in Christ, putting aside our differences.
Here is the hymn text for your reflection.

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol’ way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way
