Staples, Mavis - Go Down Moses Lyrics




When Israel was in Egypt's land
Let my people go
Oppressed so hard they could not stand
Let my people go
Thus said the Lord, bold Moses said:
"Let my people go
If not, I'll smite your firstborn dead
Let my people go"

Go down, Moses
Way down in Egypt land
Tell ol' pharaoh
To let my people go

No more shall they
In bondage toll
Let my people go
Let them come out
With Egypt's spoil
Let my people go
As Israel stood
By the water side
Let my people go
At the command of God
It did divide
Mm, let 'em go

You better go down
Go down, Moses
Go way down in Egypt land
Tell ol' pharaoh
To let my people go

Oh, Moses, the cloud shall clear away
Let my people go
A fire by night, and shade by day
Oh, let 'em go

Oh let us all from bondage, flee
Let my people go
And let us all, in Christ, be free
Oh, let 'em go

You better go down
Go down, Moses
Go way down in Egypt
Tell ol'
Tell ol' pharaoh to let my people go

Said go down, Moses
Way down in Egypt land
Tell ol' pharaoh
To let my people go

Let 'em go
Let 'em go, mm
Let my people go

Tell pharaoh
Let my people, let 'em go
Let 'em go
Let 'em go
Let my people go, ooh
Oh, go down
Go down, Moses
Let my people go
