lyrics

Rich man reading from a holy book
Got a puzzled look
He says, “I don’t understand”
A stranger stands in the dusty road
“Can we share the load?”
He says, “let me lend a hand”
An invitation to be baptized and believe
Next thing you know, he’s down on his knees

He says: What are we waiting for?
What’s it gonna be?
There’s nothing but this water between my Savior and me
Never mind my pride
It’s time to lay aside my dignity and dive in
We’re right beside the shore
So what are we waiting for?

Poor man fishing in a little boat
Trying to keep afloat
He hasn’t caught a thing
A stranger’s voice is crying out
And there’s something about it
A familiar ring
“Cast your nets out on the other side”
The floodgates open, the Father’s hands provide
The recognition of his blessed risen Lord
Next thing you know - man overboard

He says: What are we waiting for?
What’s it gonna be?
There’s nothing but this water between my Savior and me
Never mind my pride
It’s time to lay aside my dignity and dive in
Striving for the shore
So what are we waiting for?

When all that entangles would strangle me
I look to the truth that can set me free
I’m breaking my ties; I’m fixing my eyes

Old man lies in a great big bed
He’s got a heavy head
It’s getting hard to breathe
The weary pilgrim has one river left to ford
His eyes are shining but he can’t see me anymore

He says: What are we waiting for?
What’s it gonna be?
There’s nothing but this water between my Savior and me
Never mind my pride
It’s time to lay aside my dignity and dive in
To find the farthest shore

So what are we waiting for?
What’s it gonna be?
There’s nothing but this water between my Savior and me
Never mind my pride
It’s time to lay aside my dignity and dive in
Striving for the shore
Arriving at the door
So what are we waiting for?
