DIDN’T OLD PHARAOH GET LOST


Isaac a-ransom
While he lay upon an altar bound
Moses an infant cast away
By Pharaoh’s daughter found

Didn’t old Pharaoh get los’, get los’, get los’
Didn’t old Pharaoh get los’
In the Red Sea   (True belever)
O, didn’t old Pharaoh get los’, get los’, get los’
Didn’t old Pharaoh get los’
In the Red Sea

Joseph by his false brethren sold
God raised above them all
To Hannah’s child the Lord foretold
How Eli’s house shall fall

The Lord said unto Moses
“Go unto Pharaoh now
For I have hardened Pharaoh’s heart
To me he will not bow”

Den Moses an’ Aaron
To Pharaoh did go
“Thus says de God of Israel
Let my people go”

Old Pharaoh said “Who is de Lord
Dat I should him obey?”
“His name it is Jehovah
For he hears his people pray”

Hark! Hear de children murmur
Dey cry aloud for bread
Down came de hidden manna
De hungry soldiers fed

Den Moses numbered Israel
Through all de land abroad
Sayin’ “Chldren, do not murmur
But hear de word of God”

Den Moses said to Israel
As they stood along the Shore
“Yo’ enemies you see today
You’ll never see no more”

Den down came raging Pharaoh
Dat you may plainly see
Old Pharaoh an’ his host
Got los’ in de Red Sea

Den men an’ women an’ children
To Moses dey did flock
Dey cried aloud for water
An’ Moses smote the rock

An’ de Lord spoke to Moses
From Sinai’s smoking top
Sayin’ “Moses lead de people
Till I shall bid you stop”
