Lyrics:

I've read a lot of books and sung a lot of songs
And seen me a miracle or two
But I've never seen a miracle just like the one
That I'm about to tell to you
The Lord told Moses to take his people
Across the sea and sand
So he led the Hebrew Children through the fire and the water
To the Hallelujah Land
Oh, Hallelujah Land… (2x)

Now the Children of the Lord were working for Pharaoh
Slaving day and night
And the Lord heard the cries of pain and suffering
And knew it wasn't right
So the bush was set a'burning for the Hebrew Children's yearning
The Good Lord had a plan
To lead the Hebrew Children through the fire and the water
To the Hallelujah Land
Oh, Hallelujah Land…

Moses was working in the desert that day
Singing a sorrowful tune
And he sat down to rest and he saw the bush
And the bush was not consumed
And the Lord looked deep into Moses soul
And knew he was the man
To lead the Hebrew Children through the fire and the water
To the Hallelujah Land
Oh, Hallelujah Land…

Now the Lord said to Moses "go to Pharaoh
Tell him 'Let My People Go'"
And Moses said "Lord, how can I do that?
Won't you make yourself known?"
And the Lord said "Moses, have faith in your courage.
I am that I am.
You will lead the Hebrew Children through the fire and the water
To the Hallelujah Land"
Oh, Hallelujah Land…

So Moses took the message to old Pharaoh
Took it right to his throne
And Pharaoh said "Don't bother me.
Just leave me alone"
But the sky grew dark as mud and the river turned to blood
And Moses took a stand
He would lead the Hebrew Children through the fire and the water
To the Hallelujah Land
Oh, Hallelujah Land…

Now Moses and the people were running out of Egypt
Pharaoh's army was coming down
And the waters opened up and the people passed through
But the army was drowned
And the people said "How?" and Moses said "Now,
That was the Lord's hand"
And he led the Hebrew Children through the fire and the water
To the Hallelujah Land
Oh, Hallelujah Land…

I've read a lot of books and sung a lot of songs
And seen me a miracle or two
But I've never seen a miracle just like the one
That I just told to you
The Lord told Moses to take his people
Across the sea and sand
So he led the Hebrew Children through the fire and the water
To the Hallelujah Land
Oh, Hallelujah Land…
