D                          G              D

Oh, my!  Oh, my!  Oh, my!  What if it was true?

Oh, my!  Oh, my!  Oh, my!  Tell me, is it true?

Did he?  Did he?  Did he die upon that cross?

Jesus walking on the water.


Sweet Jesus walking in the sky.


Sink in sand, took my hand,


Raised me up and he brought me up.

      G                  A

I can hold my-my-my head high!


Will I?  Will I?  Will I be true to my birth?

Will I?  Will I?  Will I give what I'm worth?

Oh, yes, sir!  Yes, sir!  Yes, sir!  I come when you call.

Yes, sir!  Yes, sir!  Yes, sir!  Jesus, I fall in awe!
