God Moves on the Water is a gospel blues song recorded by Blind Willie Johnson in and released on a 78 rpm record by Columbia Records. The song describes the sinking of RMS Titanic and the consequent loss of life after it struck an iceberg on April 14, Its origins are obscure: topical songs are generally written soon after the event to which they relate.

Johnson's lyrics call the ship's captain, E. SmithA. Smith, which suggests an oral tradition. The fact that two of the earliest recordings, by Johnson in and by Mance Lipscomb inwere made by Texans suggests an origin in that state. The title may allude to the Book of Genesis at : "And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters". If it does, the song may derive from an earlier gospel songnow Baie Des Anges - Julien Doré - Bichon. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
