Let My People Go (Go Down Moses)

When Israel was in Egypt land
Let my people go!
Oppressed so hard they could not stand.
Let my people go!

Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt land.
Tell ol' Pharaoh to let my people go!

"Thus saith the Lord," bold Moses said
Let my people go!
"If not I'll smite your first born dead."
Let my people go!
