  • Oh my Anacostia
    Do not sigh, do not weep
    Beneath the overpass
    Your Savior's waiting patiently

    Walking on the water
    Flowing with the poisons
    From the naval yards
    He's talking to the fallen reeds

    Saying what will become of us?
    What will become of us?
    Oh

    Wade in the water
    God's gonna trouble the water

    A small red sun makes way for night
    Trails away like a tail light
    Is that Jesus on the water
    Talking to the fallen trees?

    Saying what will become of us?
    What will become of us?
    Oh

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

    What will become if God's gonna trouble waters?
    What will become if God's gonna trouble waters?
    What will become if God's gonna trouble waters?
    Wade in the water, God's gonna trouble the water
    Wade in the water, God's gonna trouble the water
    Wade in the water, God's gonna trouble the water

    Wade in the water
    God's gonna trouble the water Publisher: Kobalt Music Publishing Ltd.
