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

“Jesus is coming back.”

“A servant of God.”

“Jesus said woe unto the scribes, the Pharisees, the hypocrites.”

(Repeat)

Who those children dressed in red?
God’s gonna trouble the water.
They going to be disappointed.
God’s gonna trouble the water.

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

“Pretending that you are a servant of God.”

Who those children dressed in white?
God’s gonna trouble the water.
They come lookin’ for their birthright.
God’s gonna trouble the water.

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

(repeat)

“Now I want you to understand, (wade) Jesus is coming back.”

Who those children dressed in black?
“We got to love our neighbor as we love ourselves,”
Once they’re gone they ain’t never coming back.
“Jesus says so.”

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

Who those children dressed in blue?
God’s gonna trouble the water.
Who’s gonna tell em it’s not for you?
God’s gonna trouble the water.

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

(repeat)

“A servant of God.”
