Go Down Moses  Spiritual

When [Em]Israel [B7]was in [Em]Egypts [C7]land,
     [B7]let my people [Em]go.
Op[Em]pressed so[B7] hard they [Em]could not [C7]stand
     [B7]let my people [Em]go.

Chorus
[E]Go down, [Am]Moses,
[B7]way down in [Em]Egypts land.
[Em]Tell old [C7]Pharaoh
to [B7]let my people [Em]go.

Thus spoke the Lord, bold Moses said,
If not, I'll smite your first born dead.

Chorus

The Lord told Moses what to do,
to lead the children of israel through.

Chorus

No more shall they in bondage toil
let them come out with Egypt's spoil.

Chorus

We need always weep and mourn
And wear these slav'ry chains forlorn

Chorus

The Devil thought he had us fast
But we thought we'd break his chains at last

Chorus

Oh let us all of bondage flee,
and let us all in Christ be free.

Chorus
