Go Down Moses


Moses and Aaron Speaking to Pharaoh
by James Jacques Joseph Tissot
c. 1896-1902
Fun song ... A good one to teach a CCD class, or just to listen to!


Go Down Moses

Go down Moses
Way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh to Let My People Go!
Now when Israel was in Egypt land ... Let My People Go!
Oppressed so hard they could not stand ... Let My People Go!

So the Lord said: “Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt land;
tell old Pharaoh to Let My People Go!”
So Moses went to Egypt land ... Let My People Go!
He made old Pharaoh understand ... Let My People Go!

Yes, the Lord said, “God down, Moses, way down in Egypt land;
tell old Pharaoh to Let My People Go!”
Thus spoke the Lord, bold Moses said, “Let My People Go!
If not I’ll smite your firstborn dead, Let My People Go!”

'Cause the Lord said, “Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt land;
tell old Pharaoh to Let My People Go!”
“Tell old Pharaoh to Let My People Go!”

St. Moses is honored on September 4.
St. Aaron is honored on July 1.
