Wade In the Water
The Golden Gate Quartet Lyrics


Wade in the water
Wade in the water, children,
Wade in the water
God's a-going to trouble the water

See that host all dressed in white
God's a-going to trouble the water
The leader looks like the Israelite
God's a-going to trouble the water
See that band all dressed in red
God's a-going to trouble the water
Looks like the band that Moses led
God's a-going to trouble the water

Look over yonder, what do you see?
God's a-going to trouble the water
The Holy Ghost a-coming on me
God's a-going to trouble the water

If you don't believe I've been redeemed
God's a-going to trouble the water
Just follow me down to the Jordan's stream
God's a-going to trouble the water

This is so beautiful.  I'm a white woman that's listened to these beautiful voices for 60 years.

@M Smith So what were you saying?  (I don't look at these songs as "slave" songs.  They are just beautiful.) 

M Smith

I know

Pamela McCarty

@M Smith What did I say?  I wasn't being racist.....I have an African American son.  Who is Captain Obvious? 

Pamela McCarty

@M Smith What was your comment?  I mentioned that I'm white because somebody said something about the songs being slave songs, and I thought it was demeaning.
