lyrics

Pharoah, Pharoah let me go
there's a festival to celebrate now
in the desert we will see no snow
it's a three day journey out

I have shown them all their lord
and they are believers now
he will strike them with his mighty sword
if they don't leave here this town

but the taskmasters they said
this is not how it shall be
they must get their straw and make their beds
and work on what we need

so Moses said to the lord himself
this is not how you said it would be
how can i pay the king all his hell
as a man of impeded speech?

the lord replied with Aaron's name
and said he will speak for you
the Egypt king will never reign
while he enslaves Hebrews

the brothers went to the royal court
and out in plain view
Moses did a trick of the magic sort
but the King's men did it too

so Moses said what happened here
Lord, what are we to do
the Lord had some tricks up his sleeve
there were ten more he would use

the final one was a great in-just
the King's son wound up dead
he could take no more and said he must
not sleep till they all have fled

the King soon gathered his wits
and set out on a chase
with his army and his chariots
he began to win the race

the Hebrews hit the waters edge
at the shore of the Sea of Reeds
with the water low, they walked across
with the King near out the trees

the army men they followed suit
but while out at sea
the water rose and washed them away
the Hebrews had gotten free

with mighty song and lots of bread
the danced their victory
slaves no more, towards home they went
trotting gloriously
