About "The Water"

 

 

This one came bubbling up from my spirit during one of my no-holds-barred praise sessions with the Lord....meaning.....I was alone with the Lord in my house, I went down to the basement and sang and worshipped before Him.  I took the idea to Greg at Full Circle Music Studio and he did his magic.

Lyrics

 

Tears filled my eyes I could not see

Preacher laid his healing hands on me

I cried, I renounced my life of sin

Sweet Jesus rescue me – Oh I’m coming in

 

I went down, down in the water, way down

Down in the muddy water

Went down to my watery grave

I came up, up from the water

Way up, from the dirty water

Came up - when I came up I was changed

 

Long years gone by – I still abide

And when I walk along that riverside

I smile and reminisce and pray

Remember my surrender, Lord, on that blessed day

 

I went down, down in the water, way down

Down in the muddy water

Went down with my sorrow and shame

I came up, up from the water

Way up, from the dirty water

Came up - when I came up I was changed

 

And I’ve gladly given up my life

To the one who walked on water

Turned water into wine

 

I went down, down in the water, way down

Down in the muddy water

Went down to my watery grave

I came up, up from the water

Way up, from the dirty water

Came up - when I came up I was changed

 

I went down – down  - down in the water

Way down – down in the muddy

Went down with my sorrow and shame

I came up, up from the water – way up

From the dirty water, came up

When I came up – I was changed

I was saved!

 

From the real Author:

 

Romans 7:25

Thank God! Jesus Christ will rescue me.

So with my mind I serve the Law of God, although my selfish desires make me serve the law of sin.

.

And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.’

 

Acts 2:21

And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

 

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

 

Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, let us settle the matter,”  says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

 

John 6:19

When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water;

 

John 2

Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine.
