WADE IN THE WATER
Traditional spiritual


Chorus:

Wade in the water
Wade in the water children
Wade in the water
God's gonna trouble the water

I.
Jordan River is chilly and cold
God's gonna trouble the water
Well it chills my body but not my soul
God's gonna trouble the water  (chorus)

II.
Tell me who's that comin' all dressed in white
God's gonna trouble the water
Well it looks like children fighting for their rights
God's gonna trouble the water (chorus)

III.
Tell me who's that coming all dressed in red
God's gonna trouble the water
Well it looks like the children that Martin led
God's gonna trouble the water (chorus)
