618. 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.

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 Hebrew children through,
Let my people go. [Refrain]

3 They journeyed on at his command,
Let my people go;
and came at length to Canaan's land,
Let my people go. [Refrain]

4 Oh, let us all from bondage flee,
Let my people go;
and let us all in Christ be free,
Let my people go. [Refrain]
