Let my people go ; Let them come out with Egypt's spoil, Let my people go. Go down, etc

4 When Israel out of Egypt came,

Let my people go ; And left the proud oppressive land, Let my people go.

6 0, 'twas a dark and dismal night,

Let my people go;

When Moses led the Israelites,

Let my people go.

6 'Twas good old Moses and Aaron, too,

Let my people go ; 'Twas they that led the armies through, Let my people go.

7 The Lord told Moses what to do,

Let my people go ; To lead the children of Israel through. Let my people go.

8 O come along Moses, you'll not get lost,

Let my people go ; Stretch out your rod and come across, Let my people go.

8 As Israel stood by the water side, Let my people go ; At the command of God it did divide, Let my people go.

[ When they h:id reached the other shore,

aj- Let my people go ;

��11 Pharaoh said he would go across,

Let my people go ; But Pharaoh and his host were lost. Let my people go.

12 Moses the cloud shall cleave the way,

Let my people go ;

A fire by night, a shade by day,

Let my people go.

13 You'll not get lost in the wilderness,

Let my people go ; With a lighted candle in your breast, Let my people go.

14 Jordan shall stand up like a wall,

Let my people go; And the walls of Jerico shall fall, Let my people go.

15 Your foes shall not before you stand,

Let my people go ; And you'll possess fair Canaan's land. Let my people go.

16 'Twas juBt about in harvest time,

Let my people go; When Joshua led liis host divine, Let my people go.

17 let us all from bondage flee,

Let my people go ;

And let us all in Christ be free,

Let my people go.

18 We need not always weep and moan,

Let my people go ; And wear these slavery chains forlorn, Let my people go.
