what water can do lyrics – jonny diaz

“what water can do”

he cannot forget that sat*rday
the day his life forever changed
as the clouds unleashed their darkest wrath
and sandbags could not hold it back

he cannot forget that sat*rday
when all his dreams were washed away
when the laughter and the lights went out
and were replaced with fear and doubt

isn’t it amazing
isn’t it amazing, it’s true
isn’t it amazing
what water can do

he will not forget that sat*rday
in just one week after the rain
when he finally learned his neighbors’ names
as they helped him drag the wreck away

he will not forget that sat*rday
when called to serve, they all obeyed
not just his house but his heart was clean
as they reached out to meet his need

isn’t it amazing
isn’t it amazing, it’s true
isn’t it amazing
what water can do

he will not forget that sunday when
the living water washed his sins
then in front of his church family
he stepped into the baptist stream

he will not forget that sunday when
he could not hide his childlike grin
cause he was raised to life from this point on
hallelujah, his chains were gone
oh hallelujah, his chains were gone

isn’t it amazing
isn’t it amazing, it’s true
isn’t it amazing
what water can do
