738. Wade in the Water

Refrain:
Wade in the water,
wade in the water, children,
Wade in the water,
God’s gonna trouble the water.

1 See that host all dressed in white,
God’s gonna trouble the water.
The leader looks like the Israelite,
God’s gonna trouble the water. [Refrain]

2 See that band all dressed in red,
God’s gonna trouble the water.
Looks like the band that Moses led,
God’s gonna trouble the water. [Refrain]

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

4 If you don’t believe I’ve been redeemed,
God’s gonna trouble the water.
Just follow me down to Jordan’s stream,
God’s gonna trouble the water. [Refrain]
