An unaccompanied setting of the beloved spiritual for SATB and baritone soloist. The writing is simple and elegant, with a breathtaking transition into the final refrain.

When Israel was in Egypt land,
let my people go!
Oppressed so hard they could not stand
let my people go!
Go down, Moses,
way down in Egypt land.
Tell old Pharaoh
let me people go!

"Thus saith the Lord," bold Moses said:
let my people go!
"If not I'll smite your firstborn dead,"
let my people go!

"No more shall they in bondage toil,"
let my people go!
"let them come out with Egypt's spoil,"
let my people go!

--African American spiritual
