103. 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 Hebrew children through,
Let my people go. (Refrain)

3 As Israel stood by the waterside,
Let my people go,
at God's command it did divide,
Let my people go. (Refrain)

4 When they had reached the other shore,
Let my people go,
they let the song of triumph soar,
Let my people go. (Refrain)

5 Lord, help us all from bondage flee,
Let my people go,
and let us all in Christ be free,
Let my people go. (Refrain)
