Go down Moses

Go down, Moses, ‘way down in Egyptland;
tell ole Pharaoh, tolet my people go.

1. When Israel was in Egyptland;
let my people go,
Oppress’d so hard they could not stand;
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. Tell ole Pharaoh, to let my people go.
(2. Bass: O let us all from bondage flee;)
let my people go.
(And let us all in Christ be free!)
let my people go!
Go down Moses ‘way down in Egyptland;
tell ole Pharaoh, to let my people go,
tolet my people go!
