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]
