Go Down Moses

Gm D7 Gm When Israel was in Egypt's land D7 Gm Let my people go. Gm6 Eb7 Oppressed so hard they could not stand Gm D7 Gm Let my people go. Chorus: C Cm Go down, Moses, Gm D7 Gm Way down in Egypt's land C7 Eb7 Tell ol' Pharaoh Gm D7 Gm "Let my people go." Thus saith the Lord, bold Moses said; If not I'll spite your firstborn dead. No more shall they in bondage toil; Let them come out with Egypt's spoil. The Lord told Moses what to do; To lead the Hebrew children through. O come along Moses, you'll not get lost; Stretch out your rod and come across; As Israel stood by the waterside; At God's command it will divide. When they reached the other shore; They sang a song of triumph o'er. Pharaoh said he'd go across; But Pharaoh and his host were lost. Jordan shall stand up like a well; And the walls of Jericho shall fall. Your foes shall not before you stand; And you'll possess fair Canaan's land. O let us all from bondage flee; And let us all in Christ be free. We need not always weep and mourn; And wear these slavery chains forlorn.
