I Went in the Stream
Parody of "Islands in the Stream" by Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton
(Colossians 2:11-12; Romans 6:3-4; 1 Peter 3:18-22; 1 Corinthians 1:13-17; Matthew 3:13-6, 28:19-20, Ephesians 2:8-9)

Baby, when I mentioned 'bout the peace I've known
I said don't forget that if you find truth shown
Don't just toss it aside, carelessly ignoring God
You do something to repent and then you'll change
Drawing closer and you'll feel so strange
When you give Him your heart
Jesus comes and grows a crop
Tending to this vine it requires a bit of patience
All the stuff we feel He knows converts face it
He guides us to Heaven uh huh
Taking us to His Father -- uh huh

I went in the stream
And it washed me off
No one else can clean
Like my Jesus does
There's one Way for me
You and all the world
And we rely on His Father, uh huh
And One Other you'll discover, uh huh

I can never add to what the Lord has done
Everything is nothing without God's own Son
And you can walk in the light
Knowing He's inside as your real king
But baptism we do as the way God showed how
To make a public statement no one doubts
And we're just making clear
It's a symbol here of the real thing

No more will you die
There's a tie this world can't sever
We start again as sons and live forever
Jesus guides us to Heaven, uh huh
Taking us to His Father, uh huh

I went in the stream
And it washed me off
Romans 6 verse 3
4,5 read it all
Don't put faith in me
You look up the words
3:21 in First Peter, yourself
And Colossians 2:11 and 12

Saved by grace
Oh, and we're saved through faith, sing with me

I went in the stream
And it washed me off
Verse 1:17
First Corinthians
Matthew 3:15
You look up the words
That Jesus Christ humbly uttered, uh huh
As He walked into the water, uh huh

I went in the stream
And They washed me off
Holy Trinity
In the name of God
28:19
You know Matthew's words
It's Jesus Christ and His Father, uh huh
And One Other you'll discover, uh huh

I went in the stream
And it washed me off
No one else can clean

Matthew 28:19-20
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe
all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of
the age."
