Go Down Moses

 

Go Down Moses

[aka: Let My People Go]

 

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
To let My people go!

 

No more shall they in bondage toil,
Let My people go!
Let them come out with Egypt’s spoil,
Let My people go!

 

Oh, let us all from bondage flee,
Let My people go!
And let us all in Christ be free,
Let My people go!

 

You need not always weep and mourn,
Let My people go!
And wear these slav’ry chains forlorn,
Let My people go!

 

Your foes shall not before you stand,
Let My people go!
And you’ll possess fair Canaan’s land,
Let My people go!

Wade in the Water

Wade in the water

Wade in the water
Wade in the water, children
Wade in the water
God's a-going to trouble the water

See that host all dressed in white
God's a-going to trouble the water
The leader looks like the Israelite
God's a-going to trouble the water

See that band all dressed in red
God's a-going to trouble the water
Looks like the band that Moses led
God's a-going to trouble the water

Look over yonder, what do you see?
God's a-going to trouble the water
The Holy Ghost a-coming on me
God's a-going to trouble the water

If you don't believe I've been redeemed
God's a-going to trouble the water
Just follow me down to the Jordan's stream
God's a-going to trouble the water
