When Israel was in Egyptland (Go down, Moses)

1) When Israel was in Egypt’s land, let my people go!
Oppressed so hard they could not stand, let my people go!

Ref.: Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt’s land.
Tell ol’ Pharao: Let my people go!

2) Thus spoke the Lord, bold Moses said: Let my people go!
If not I’ll smite your first-born dead, let my people go!

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

4) Oh let us all from bondage flee, let my people go!
And let us all in Christ be free, let my people go!
