Spiritual: Wade in the Water

Wade in the water,
Wade in the water, children,
Wade in the water.
God’s gonna trouble the water.

Souls, come magnify the Lord,
God’s gonna trouble the water,
Spirits sing with one accord,
God’s gonna trouble the water.

Overturning this world’s way,
God’s gonna trouble the water,
God will bring a brand new day,
God’s gonna trouble the water,

Tyrants tumbled from on high,
God’s gonna trouble the water,
Low ones raised up to the sky,
God’s gonna trouble the water,

Hungry people filled with bread,
God’s gonna trouble the water,
Full ones emptied out instead,
God’s gonna trouble the water,

To this promise God is true,
God’s gonna trouble the water,
Mercy’s flood for me and you,
God’s gonna trouble the water,

~ African-American spiritual; verses by the 2012 Advent planning group, Leader Magazine.
