“Down in the River to Pray” – southern spiritual, as sung by Apollo’s FireFor my Holy Mother, Danu. I realize that this is a Christian spiritual, just as I realize the river referred to in the lyrics is a physical river. But this song always makes me think of Her. Yesterday, as I was spending time getting to know two of my new Gods, I stumbled across this song (though a different version) and just like that, She was with me and all was Hers. She, along with an’Dagda, will always be first in my heart and is never far from my thoughts. So this song is offered up to the Celestial River of Life, as She has revealed Herself to me.
