Chorus:
God promised to lead his children out of bondage
He said He'd free them from Pharaoh's evil hand
He said He'd guide and protect them on their journey
And lead them to the promised land.

God's children were slaves in Egypt land
So God took Moses by the hand
He said, ''Moses, Tell old Pharaoh to set 'em free.''
But Moses wanted wanted a way to get out
Because in his mind he's beginning to doubt
And he said, ''Lord, old Pharaoh,
He ain't a-gonna listen to me.''

Now the Lord said, ''Son, throw down that rod.''
Old Moses did and he cried to God
Because it turned to a snake, as evil and wicked as sin
Then he cried again with an awful wail
And the Lord said, ''Seize him by the tail.''
Old Moses did and it turned to a rod again.

Chorus:
God promised to lead his children out of bondage
He said He'd free them from Pharaoh's evil hand
He said He'd guide and protect them on their journey
And lead them to the promised land.

Well, the Lord said, ''Moses, I've got power
And I'll be with you every hour
Said, ''Go tell Pharaoh to set My children free.''
Well, Moses did but the Lord helped out
He sent a plague to the land about
So old Pharaoh told him he could go,
And let him be.

Well, they started out with a cloud that day
And a fire by night to lead the way
But old Pharaoh suddenly decided to change his mind.
So he gathered together his soldier band
Got all them chariots throughout the land
Said, ''I'll let them Israelites go some other time.''

Chorus:
God promised to lead his children out of bondage
He said He'd free them from Pharaoh's evil hand
He said He'd guide and protect them on their journey
And lead them to the promised land.

Well, they came to the banks of the old Red Sea
Turned to Moses and started to plea
And Moses fell on his knees, and there in the sand
The Lord said, ''Moses, trust in God
'Cause all's you gotta do is just raise that rod
And over these mighty waters stretch your hand.''

Well, Moses followed the Lord's command
The waters parted and there in the sand
They saw a path that led to the other shore
Well, the ground was dry and they passed on through
And old Pharaoh's army thought they would too.
But the waters fell, they ain't never been seen no more.

Chorus:
God promised to lead his children out of bondage
He said He'd free them from Pharaoh's evil hand
He said He'd guide and protect them on their journey
And lead them to the promised land.

And lead them to the promised land...
