 Wade
in
the
water,
wade
in
the

children,
 Wade
in
the

[range
(simplified)]
 Some
say
I’ve
never
been
redeemed, 
 

 
 God’s
gonna
trouble
the
water 
 
 
 
 
 Just
follow
me
down
to
Jordan
stream.
 
 
 God’s
gonna
trouble
the
water 
 
 
 
 
 I’ll
tell
you
how
the
Lord
has
set
myself
free,
 God’s
gonna
trouble
the
water 
 
 
 
 
 And
when
I
get
to
heaven,
how
happy
I’ll
be.
 God’s
gonna
trouble
the
water

 Text:

freedom,
oh
freedom,
oh
freedom,
over
me.
 
And
before
I
be
a
slave,
I’ll
be
buried
in
my
grave,
 
And
go
home
to
my
Lord
and
be
free.
 
No
more
weeping,
etc.
…

 •  Go
back
and
listen
to
“Oh
Freedom”
again
on
your
 own
 –  To
what
extent
are
you
hearing
European
 approaches?
African
approaches?
Both?
 •  Compare
“Oh
Freedom”
and
“Wade
in
the
Water”
to
 your
