Refrain:
Come down,
Come down, my Lord!
Come down,
Way down in Egypt land.

1 Jesus Christ, He died for me
Way down in Egypt land;
Jesus Christ, He set me free,
Way down in Egypt land. [Refrain]

2 Born of God I know I am,
Way down in Egypt land;
I'm purchased by the dying Lamb,
Way down in Egypt land. [Refrain]

3 Peter walked upon the sea,
Way down in Egypt land
And Jesus told him, "Come to Me,"
Way down in Egypt land [Refrain]
