Representative Text

1 The waters are troubled,
The angel is here;
The fountain of mercy
Flows healing and clear;
O come in your sorrow,
And come in your sin;
The water are troubled,
Step in, O step in!

2 The waters are troubled,
No longer delay;
The fountain of mercy
Has healing today.
Then why will you linger,
Since life you may win?
The waters are troubled,
Step in, O step in!

3 The waters are troubled,
The angel still waits;
He pauses in peril
Who halts and debates.
Give over your falt’ring,
Your struggles within,
The waters are troubled,
Step in, O step in!
