Wade in the water
Wade in the water, children
Wade in the water
God's going to trouble the water.

See that host all dressed in white
God's going to trouble the water
The leader looks like the Israelite
God's going to trouble the water.

See that band all dressed in red
God's going to trouble the water
Looks like the band that Moses led
God's going to trouble the water.

Look over yonder, what do you see?
God's going to trouble the water
The Holy Ghost a-coming on me
God's going to trouble the water.

If you don't believe I've been redeemed
God's going to trouble the water
Just follow me down to the Jordan's stream
God's going to trouble the water.
