The Exodus

Darkness deep, I knew you intimately

Wrapped in a shroud

So many shameful secrets to keep

Peeled back skin, clearly slave to my sin

How did I get here,

So deeply wounded within?

 

During those dark days, groaning in my pain, I cried out “Lord God, free this slave!”

—————————————

Oh you heard, Oh you knew, you cried out ” My child, I will rescue You!”

Out of Egypt I call my daughter

Out of Egypt I draw my son

your time of slavery–it is over

your time of freedom has been won! (2x)

—————————————

Pharoahs call, seductive claims

Fleeting pleasure

Don’t you miss your chains?

Wilderness long, where’s your Face?

Should i go back?

Have you run out of grace?

 

Those dry days, lost in desert sand, I cried out “Father, where’s the Promise Land?”

————————————–

Oh you heard, Oh you knew, you whispered ” My child, I have rescued You!”

Out of Egypt I called my daughter

Out of Egypt I drew my son

your time of bondage–it is over

Believe your freedom has been won! (2x)

—————————————-

Longing heart, sustained only by grace

How much longer until

I see my Deliverer’s Face?

But On I press, for Cannan I’m bound

For what can compare

to this perfect Love I have found?

 

During these long years, you’ve seen me through, now I cry “Holy One, All worship to You!”

—————————————–

Oh you hear, You always knew, you sing “Beloved, my heart beats for you!”

Out of Egypt precious daughter

Out of Egypt, beloved bride

the time of longing is almost over

Soon you’ll worship at my side. 
(Voices Only)

Into Canaan, all His people

Into Cannan, spotless Ones!

Life your voice in humble worship,

Gaze upon the beauty of the Son.

 

Into Canaan, all His people

Into Cannan, spotless Ones!

Life your voice in humble worship

Gaze upon the beauty of the Son.
