Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

Wade in the water
Wade in the water, children
Wade in the water
God's gonna trouble the water

Well now, you see those children all dressed in white?
Wade in the water
Must be the children of the Israelites
God's gonna trouble the water

Well now, you see those children dressed in black?
They come a long way, ain't turning back

See those children dressed in blue?
Looks like my people: they're coming on through

See those children dressed in red?
Must be the children that Moses led

See those children all dress in green?
You know they moving down to that Jordan stream

You know, some say Peter and some say Paul?
You know, there ain't but one God made us all.
