Description

1917 arrangement of the spiritual, "Go down, Moses, Let my people go!"

[Verse 1]
When Israel was in Egypt's land
Let my people go
Oppressed so hard they could not stand
Let my people go

[Chorus]
Go down, Moses
'Way down in Egypt's land
Tell ole Pharaoh
To let my people go

[Verse 2]
Thus saith the Lord, bold Moses said
Let my people go
If not, I'll smite your firstborn dead
Let my people go

[Chorus]
Go down, Moses
'Way down in Egypt's land
Tell ole Pharaoh
To let my people go!
