Take Me Down To The Water

I’ve strayed so far from God’s bright path

My heart has troubles it holds

I know he will welcome me back

If I return to the fold

 

So take me down to the water

That muddy, soul cleansing water

Lay me back, say a prayer, wash away all my cares

Take me down to the water right now

 

I used to look with judgment on

The ones who fell by the way

I know too well what road they’re on

I’m right there with them today

 

So take me down to the water

That muddy, soul cleansing water

Lay me back, say a prayer, wash away all my cares

Take me down to the water right now

                       

Here I am on bended knee

My soul laid bare to you

Cut loose these chains and set me free

As only you can do

 

I dare not wait another day

I'll sink for sure if I do

I want to walk the pilgrim way

That leads me closer to you
