God Said "Set My People Free"

The author of this short praise-style chorus based on Exodus 5:1 and Isaiah 58:6 is unknown. It was published in 1973 in Songs of Praise, with no attribution.

It is not the same as the longer hymn by Phyllis C. Spiers (1920 - 1995) which has verses starting "He's able, he's able ..." - for which copyright in the USA was registered in 1950 by Gospel Publishing House, and is now assigned to Lorenz Corporation.

Lyrics

God said, Set my people free and let them go.
God said, Set my people free and let them go.
God said, Set my people free and let them go.
Into the promised land the the oppressed go free.
Into the promised land the the oppressed go free.
There's deliverance in Zion for you and me.
O, let the oppressed go free.
