Songs from EXODUS

 

 

LEAD ME, I'LL FOLLOW - Moses

 

1.  What do I do – where should I go now  --

Can I find a way –

Out of the dark – into the sunlight –

Of a brand-new day –

With my God to guide me, I will make it through –

With your hand to hold me,

I will trust in you

 

So lead me, I’ll follow,  Across the lonely desert –

I’ll go where you bring me,  I know you are my friend.

 

2.  Where will I go, where will you bring me,

What will you do?

You reveal my journey, I have faith in you –

 

So lead me, I’ll follow,  Through darkness and through storm –

So lead me, my saviour, I will follow you.

FOUR PESTS - (The Company)

 

1.    Now Moses came to Pharoah and he made a big request,

“Let my people go, it is really for the best.”

Moses said to Pharoah “will you let us go today?”

Pharoah looked at Moses and he said   --

(spoken, by all)   “No way!”

 

Chorus 1.  Now the frogs came a-hopping and they hopped in the street

And they hopped on the plates and they hopped on the meat

They hopped on the carpet and they hopped on the bed,

They hopped round Pharoah till Pharoah said --

(spoken, by one child)    “Gross!”

  Now the flies came a-buzzing and they buzzed in the street

And they buzzed in the morning and they buzzed in the heat

They buzzed in the palace and they buzzed in the shed

They buzzed around Pharoah till Pharoah said --

(spoken, by one child)    “Bo—ring!”

 

 

Vs 2   Moses said to Pharoah “You should really let us go.

“It is what you’ve got to do for the Lord has told me so.”

Pharoah looked at Moses and he said, “So sad,

Your people want to leave me but it’s just  ---

(spoken, by all)  Too bad!”

 

 Chorus:   Now  the gnats came a-biting and they bit in the street

And they bit on the toes and they bit on the feet,

They bit on the nose and they bit on the head

They bit around Pharoah till Pharoah said --

(spoken, by one child)    “Too much!”

 

 Now the locusts came a-munching and they munched in the street

And they munched on the dinner and they munched on the sweet,

They munched on the soup and they munched on the bread,

They munched around Pharoah till Pharoah said --

(Pharoah himself shouts out)    “ENOUGH!”

TO THE PROMISED LAND – The Company

From EXODUS

Moses:  The Lord God has saved us, for He is our salvation

Chorus  He saved us to make us a great and holy nation.

 

 

Moses (with Jethro and Miriam)   So lead me, I’ll follow,

through darkness and through storm

Chorus  Lead us, we’ll follow, through thorny way and desert,

Lead us we’ll follow through darkness and through storm.

 

All:   Out of Egypt here we come, sound the trumpet, beat the drum.

Clash the cymbals, raise your voice, singing loudly we rejoice.

Out of bondage, happy day, blessed liberation,

Marching proudly on our way, praising our salvation.

God the Lord is on our side, he is our protector,

He will be our shelter and our shield.

 

To a better land we go, where the milk and honey flow,

Where the sheep can safely roam, peace for all in our new home.

Clap your hands, forest trees,  Mountains dance, stars and seas,

King of Kings you are our God, we’re your chosen people,

We will sing and honour God’s Name .

 

Lead on lead on Moses, Go on go on Moses,

Bring us to our future promised land!   Promised Land!  

Promised Land!
