a baptismal prayer…

wading in the water
wading in the water children
wading in the water
God’s gonna trouble the water…
now lord
        i don’t mean no disrespect
but i’ve got troubles
                of my own
     so while these folks are singing
     i thought we might talk for a while
now as you know
            i can’t swim
and if this preacher loses his grip
     i’m surely heaven bound
     so i feel its important that we agree
that any mistakes now
         don’t count against me
i left that pew and came up front
      told folks things bout my sinning
      that they never knew
and i don’t believe i should pay
for some preacher who drank
           the left over wine
      had we done this before church i’d be fine
      but lord that man can’t be stable now
so if it’s okay with you
we’ll call this deal done
     and whatever happens next
                  ain’t no fault of mine
