Lyrics
[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 red
Wade in the water
Must be the children that Moses left
And God's gonna trouble the water

[Chorus:]

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

[Chorus:]

Who's that young girl dressed in blue
Wade in the water
Must be children coming true
And God's gonna trouble the water

[Chorus:]

If you don't believe I did begin to wade in the water
Just see the Holy Ghost looking for me
God's gonna trouble the water

[Chorus:]
