Take Me to the Water


Take me to the water,
take me to the water,
take me to the water
to be baptized.

None but the righteous,
none but the righteous,
none but the righteous
shall see God.

I love Jesus,
I love Jesus,
I love Jesus,
oh, yes, I do.

He’s my Savior,
he’s my Savior,
he’s my Savior,
oh, yes, he is.
