Go Down Moses  Misc. Gospel

When I[Gm]srae[D7]l was i[Gm]n Egypt’s land
Let my [D7]people g[Gm]o.
Oppressed so hard they[Gm6] could not [Eb7]stand
[Gm]Let my [D7]people [Gm]go.

Go down, [C]Mose[Cm]s,
W[Gm]ay d[D7]own in E[Gm]gypt’s land
T[C7]ell ol’ [Eb7]Pharaoh
"L[Gm]et my [D7]people [Gm]go."

Thus saith the Lord, bold Moses said;
If not I’ll spite your firstborn dead.

No more shall they in bondage toil;
Let them come out with Egypt’s spoil.

The Lord told Moses what to do;
To lead the Hebrew children through.

O come along Moses, you’ll not get lost;
Stretch out your rod and come across;

As Israel stood by the waterside;
At God’s command it will divide.

When they reached the other shore;
They sang a song of triumph o’er.

Pharaoh said he’d go across;
But Pharaoh and his host were lost.

Jordan shall stand up like a well;
And the walls of Jericho shall fall.

Your foes shall not before you stand;
And you’ll possess fair Canaan’s land.

O let us all from bondage flee;
And let us all in Christ be free.

We need not always weep and mourn;
And wear these slavery chains forlorn.
