Go Down There

As the river Nile floats
Go down way to Egypt
The slashes stay on skin
Oppressed till the coming of night
Years hunched over on their backs

Go down way to Egypt
As the river Nile floats peacefully
Watch pharaoh gaze over his place
His beard pointed, his gaze piercing

Oh Moses, oh Moses
Come out and arise
The set time has arrived
The time to uplift your people
Has been christened by the blood of your father
Have no more misery, drink no more sadness
For onto pain, courage and hope are born

Go down, way down
Through the river Nile
Go down, way down there
And hasten to your people’s voice
