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.
