Walk on the Water

Our church has always loved to sing the old spiritual “Wade in the Water” since we first started singing it a decade or two ago.  Well we’ve done the song a couple times now with new words, called “Walk on the Water” based on the story of Peter in Matthew 14.  Your church might enjoy it, especially supporting a message about faith or putting faith into action (our current worship series is called ACTION, based on the book of James).  Here is a recording from last Sunday.  Lyrics are below.  Hope you enjoy it.

Walk on the Water – recording

Walk on the Water
(to the tune of “Wade in the Water”)

Walk on the water
Walk on the water, Peter
Walk on the water, oh
Peter gonna walk on the water

Jesus came walking ‘cross the lake at night
(Peter gonna walk on the water)
Thought he was a ghost – they were filled with fright
(Peter gonna walk on the water)
Peter said, “Jesus, if it’s really you”
(Peter gonna walk on the water)
“I wanna walk on the water too”
(Peter gonna walk on the water)

Walk on the water
Walk on the water, Peter
Walk on the water, oh
Peter gonna walk on the water

Peter jumped out, started out just fine
(Peter gonna walk on the water)
But then fear and doubt began to fill his mind
(Peter gonna walk on the water)
Sinking down when saw the wind and waves
(Peter gonna walk on the water)
Jesus grabbed his hand and he was saved
(Peter gonna walk on the water)

Walk on the water
Walk on the water, Peter
Walk on the water, oh
Peter gonna walk on the water

What do we learn from the story told?
(We gonna walk on the water)
We can do great things if our faith is bold
(We gonna walk on the water)
Never be afraid of the waves and wind
(We gonna walk on the water)
Don’t give in to doubt and keep your eyes on him
(We gonna walk on the water)

Walk on the water
Walk on the water, people
Walk on the water, oh
We gonna walk on the water
We gonna walk on the water
