lyrics

Year of nineteen hundred and twelve, April the fourteenth day
Great Titanic struck an iceberg, people had to run and pray
People had to run and pray

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray

The guards who had been a-watching, asleep 'cause they were tired
When they heard the great excitement, then a gunshot was fired

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray

Captain Smith gave orders, women and children first
Many of the lifeboats piled right up, and the people they were liable to crush

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray

Oh, Ah, Oh, Ah,

So many had to leave their happy home, all that they possess
Lord Jesus, will you hear us now, help us in our distress

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray

A.G. Smith, mighty man, built a boat that he couldn't understand
Named it a name, God in a tin, took it to sea but Lord pulled it in.

God moves on the water
God moves on the water
And the people had to run and pray
