Verse 1
For 400 years we lived under strain
Harsh Pharaoh was grim,
We endured the pain.

The jewel of the Nile
Was Egypt so fair,
Such riches, such glory
Such pomp and such flair!

Then Moses was raised up,
With his brother Aaron too
God spoke to them both
“You’ve got some work to do!”
With his rod in his hand,
Aaron at his side
Moses then declared
In humility, not pride.

Chorus 1
Moses: Let My people go!
Pharaoh: I will not let them go
Moses: Let My people go!
Pharaoh: My power I will show

Verse 2
In Egypt the plagues began
Our God, He had a plan

One – the Nile turned ruby red
Two – the frogs were everywhere,
Frogs below, frogs on high
In their beds making them cry!
Three – there were the sickening lice
Four – flies of every size
Five – the death of all livestock too
What were the Egyptians to do?

Pharaoh: I will not let them go.

Six – oh my, the nasty boils
Seven – ice fell out from the skies
Eight – locusts flew all in
Nine – darkness black as sin.
And Ten – the worst on the list
The firstborn all gone and all missed!

Chorus 2
Pharaoh: Oh fine, I’ll let you go
God’s People: Thank God you let us go!
Pharaoh: Make haste don’t move too slow
God’s People: We’ve got to go!

Verse 3
Riders stomped in haste,
They had no time to waste!
Before us the crimson tide
Nowhere to run or hide!

Chorus 3
Pharaoh: I will not let you go
God’s People: You have to let us go!
Pharaoh: I will not let you go
God’s People: Let us go!

Verse 4
Jehovah our help and aid
Your love will never fade!
Remove this horrid foe,
He simply has to go!

We followed our leader
Through the Red Sea we trod
Protection, like in Goshen
Our God kept His word!

Chorus 3
Pharaoh: I will not let you go
God’s People: You have to let us go
Pharaoh: I will not let you go
God’s People: Let us go!

Bridge
But for Pharaoh, that loser
What was his doom?
His army under water
To a sudden gloom!

The horse and rider thrown into the sea!
The horse and rider thrown into the sea!
Our God has come and given the victory!

Ooooohh! The foe is gone
He’s no longer here
Our God has come,
There’s nothing to fear!

End Chorus
Pharaoh: I had to let them go
God’s People: God made him let us go!
