715. Go Down, Moses

1 When Israel was in Egypt’s land,
Let my people go:
Oppressed so hard they could not stand,
Let my people go.

Go down, Moses,
'Way down in Egypt’s land,
Tell ol' Pharaoh,
To let my people go.

2 The Lord told Moses what to do,
Let my people go:
To lead the children of Israel through,
Let my people go. (Refrain)

3 As Israel stood by the water side,
Let my people go:
At God's command it did divide,
Let my people go. (Refrain)

4 When they had reached the other shore,
Let my people go:
They sang the song of triumph o'er,
Let my people go. (Refrai)

5 Oh, let us all from bondage flee,
Let my people go:
And let us all in Christ be free,
Let my people go. (Refrain)
