Chorus
I been wading through deep waters trying to get home but the waves of sin they dash so high sometimes i think i'm gone but when i think i'm gonna sink i hold my hands up high and the great big hand of god comes down and takes a hold of mine

Verse 1
Well as moses led the childern of Israel out on Egypt land before him was a big red sea the lord said moses strech for thy hand and the big red sea just rolled back and they walked on through dry land

Verse 1
As Peter went to meet the Lord a walkin on the sea,
He looked around and saw the waves and he began to sink,
But God heard his cry for help, oh Lord please save me,
He reached down his hand for him, he'll do the same for me.

Chorus
I'm wading through deep waters tryin to get home,
The waves of sin they dash so high, sometimes I think I'm gone,
But when I think I'm gonna sink, I'll raise my hand up high
That great big hand of God comes down and takes a hold of mine.

Verse 2
As Moses and the Israelites fled Pharoah and his men,
It looked as if they all would die and fear came over them,
But God spoke unto Moses stretch your hand out over the sea,
He reached down his hand for them, he'll do the same for me.

this is the version I sang w/ my mother as a child...

when Peter went to meet the Lord a walkin on the sea
he looked around and saw the waves & he began to sink
but Jesus heard his cry for help "o Lord please save me"
He reached down His hand for him, He'll do the same for me

I've been wading thru deep water trying to get home
the waves of sin they sin they dash so high
sometimes I think I'm gone
but when I think I'm gonna sink, I raise my hands up high
and that great big hand of God's comes down & takes a hold of mine

when Moses and all Israel fled from Pharoah & his men
it looked as if they all would die & fear fell upon them
but God said unto Moses, "stretch your rod out over the sea"
the waters He rolled back for them He'll do the same for me

The last two are the lyrics. The first one is what is posted all over the internet, but isn't correct. I grew up listening to this song and sing this quite frequently myself.
What I would like is a piano sheet music of this song. Can anyone help?
