459. Wade in the Water

Refrain:
Wade in the water, wade in the water, children,
wade in the water, God’s a-goin'a trouble the water.

1 See that host all dressed in white,
God’s a-goin'a trouble the water.
the leader looks like the Israelite,
God’s a-goin'a trouble the water. [Refrain]

2 See that band all dressed in red,
God’s a-goin'a trouble the water.
looks like the band that Moses led.
God’s a-goin'a trouble the water. [Refrain]

3 Look over yonder, what do I see?
God’s a-goin'a trouble the water.
the Holy Ghost a-coming on me,
God’s a-goin'a trouble the water. [Refrain]

4 If you don’t believe I’ve been redeemed,
God’s a-goin'a trouble the water.
just follow me down to Jordan’s stream.
God’s a-goin'a trouble the water. [Refrain]
