There really are no words to express just how stunning of a performance Team Adam's Deanna Johnson gave during the Live Playoffs on The Voice. She performed the classic gospel song, "Down To The River To Pray", blowing away the audience and judges with her jaw-dropping rendition. 

"Down To The River To Pray" is a traditional hymn. Its exact origins are unknown, but it gained a lot of popularity when Alison Krauss sang it for the O Brother, Where Art Thou soundtrack in 2000. 

Deanna, a native-Georgian, has continually won over the judges with her expert renditions. This time is no different. Her soulful vocals just capture a person's attention, holding them throughout the entire performance. This is one of those songs and performances that will bring y'all to church. It's a must-see. Don't miss out!

Lyrics

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!

O sisters let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O sisters let's go down
Down in the river to pray

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

O brothers let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
Come on brothers, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

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

O fathers let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O fathers let's go down
Down in the river to pray

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

O mothers let's go down
Come on down, don't you wanna go down?
Come on mothers, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

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

O sinners, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O sinners, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

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