"Wade in the water" as written by and Aaron Willis....
Wade in the water
Wade in the water
Children wade, in the water
God's gonna trouble the water
Who's that young girl dressed in red
Wade in the water
Must be the children that Moses led
God's gonna trouble the water

[Chorus:]
Wade in the water, wade in the water children
Wade in the water,
God's gonna trouble the water

Who's that young girl dressed in white
Wade in the water
Must be the children of the Israelite
Oh, God's gonna trouble the water

[Chorus:]

Who's that young girl dressed in blue
Wade in the water
Must be the children that's coming through,
God's gonna trouble the water, yeah

[Chorus:]

You don't believe I've been redeemed,
Wade in the water
Just so the whole lake goes looking for me
God's gonna trouble the water

[Chorus:]

    General Commentisn't this about baptism, like as the poor go to group baptisms and treat it like a social event. It's gt alot to do with life and beliefs.
    a truly awesome song
