Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

825. When Israel Was in Egypt's Land

1 When Israel was in Egypt´s Land,
Let My people go;
Oppressed so hard they could not stand,
Let My people go.

Refrain:
Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt´s land,
Tell old Pharaoh:
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 The pillar of cloud shall clear the way,
Let My people go;
A fire by night, a shade by day,
Let My people go. [Refrain]

4 As Israel stood by the waterside,
Let My people go;
At God's command it did divide,
Let My people go. [Refrain]

5 When they had reached the other shore,
Let My people go;
They sang the song of triumph o'er,
Let My people go. [Refrain]

6 Oh, let us all from bondage flee,
Let My people go;
And let us all in Christ be free,
Let My people go. [Refrain]
