STORY OF MOSES

Verse 1

Before the birth of Moses
The Israelite population exploded
They were slaves to Egyptians
The Pharaoh said hold it (Hold it)

We got to do something to control this
So he sent to order out killing male babies

That way they would never try
To overtake me
Moses’ mother was a pretty smart lady Cause

she put him in a basket

And she floated him to safety
Down the river he traveled
And made his way to the banks
Where the Pharaoh’s daughter

Had came to bathe
She ran to the river and picked him up (Picked him up)
From orphan to prince he’s growing up (Growing up)
Moses saw the blood

Of his fellow people spilling
Got into a conflict and ended up killing The Pharaoh
Would’ve did the same to him so he hid
In the desert of Midian, 40 years where he lived

 

Chorus

Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Let my people go
They did suffered long enough Moses, let ‘em know
Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Let my people out
If you don’t, Imma show you What the wrath of God about

(Repeat)

 

Verse 2

God came to Moses
In the form of a bush that didn’t burn
Even though it was on fire
Said Pharaoh had to learn
So Moses and Egypt went toe-to-toe
He went back-to-back screaming
Let my people go
But the Pharaoh said
No, the Hebrew’s are gonna stay
So God hit him and his people with ten plagues
The water turned to blood and killed all the fish
The frogs covered the land, he still wouldn’t submit

The dust turned to lice and then came the flies
The animals were struck with sickness and they died

Then boils came next – that’s sores on the skin
Then hail mixed with fire, he said no again
So locusts came through and swarmed all the land

Everything was so dark you couldn’t see your hands

But the

Pharaoh wouldn’t budge
After all the Lord had done
But what he didn’t know – the worst was yet to come

 

Chorus

Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Let my people go
They did suffered long enough Moses, let ‘em know
Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Let my people out
If you don’t, Imma show you What the wrath of God about

(Repeat)

 

Verse 3

So the Pharaoh was still being a wise guy
God said
Okay, no more Mr. Nice Guy
He sent the Angel of Death so he could fly by

And kill every firstborn son, under the night sky

Pharaoh’s son died too, that was enough

He was gonna give ‘em up, he was done playing tough

Moses led the Hebrew people out faithfully
Pharaoh changed his mind
Tried to bring them back to slavery

Moses saw the whole army looking deadly
So he moved quick and got stuck at the Red Sea God

said stretch your arms to divide it
The whole sea moved to the side when he tried it So

they made it across walking on dry land Pharaoh tried too,

but he didn’t understand
That the freedom of the people
Was just a part of God’s plan
And the water came back
And drowned him and all his men
