There is a man come into Egypt
And Moses is his name
When he saw the grief upon us
In his heart there burned a flame
In his heart there burned a flame
Oh Lord
In his heart there burned a flame
When he saw the grief upon us
In his heart there burned a flame.

There is a man come into Egypt
His eyes are full of light
Like the sun come up in Egypt
Come to drive away the night
Come to drive away the night
Oh Lord
Come to drive away the night
Like the sun come up in Egypt
Come to drive away the night.

There is a man come into Egypt
He's come for you and me
On his lips a word is singing
And the word is Liberty
And the word is Liberty
Oh Lord
And the word is Liberty
On his lips a word is singing
And the word is Liberty.

There is a man come into Egypt
To stir the souls of men
We will follow him to freedom
Never wear those chains again
Never wear those chains again
Oh Lord
Never wear those chains again
We will follow him to freedom
Never wear those chains again.
