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!
