I Have Come Out Of Egypt


I have come out of Egypt and its bondage drear,
No more I’m a captive of despair;
My sins are forgiven and I have no fear,
For God is with me ev’rywhere.

Refrain:
I am in the promised land where living waters flow,
In the promised land where fruits and flowers grow,
‘Tis heaven in my soul while walking here below,
Over in the promised land.

I was once in the wilderness with manna fed,
But found no abiding place for me;
For soon to a fairer country I was led,
The promised land of victory. [Refrain]

In this fair land of promise skies are always bright,
No sin hides the sunlight of the day;
My Lord always holds me by His wondrous might,
And keeps me as the days go by. [Refrain]

I no longer am living on the husks of sin,
The best food of Canaan now is mine;
And in ev’ry battle I the vict’ry win,
Supported by His grace divine. [Refrain]
