"The Ten Commandments" lyrics

The Ten Commandments

Moses led God's children out
To find the promised land
And on the way he'd stop each day
And look to heaven and
Asked God for help as he could not
Withstand the task alone
And then one day he looked away
And thereby lay a stone

God said, "Write upon this stone
These words I say to you
And if you all obey my rules
I'll see you safely through"
God opened heaven's doors
And then He guided Moses' hands
And then He said, "Go and tell my children
These are my commands"

"Go and climb that mountain, Moses
Climb that mountain now and pray
Climb that mountain now and tell us
What our Lord has had to say"

"Thou shalt have no Gods before me
Is my great command
And thou shalt not make any graven
Image by thy hand
Thou shalt not take my name in vain
If thou would guiltless be
Remember thou to keep the sabbath
Day alone for me

Honor thy father and thy mother
And thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not commit adultery
And thou shalt not steal
Love thy neighbor as thyself
And show thy neighbor peace
Covet not thy neighbor's house
Nor anything that's his"

"Go and climb that mountain, Moses
Climb that mountain now and pray
Climb that mountain now and tell us
What our Lord has had to say"

Moses showed these words of God
To all the children then
They pulled up stakes and headed out
To find the promised land
That Moses had described to them
And told of comforts there
The children of oppression thought
They'd not find anywhere

But they were soon to part from him
And push alone awhile
For it was never meant for him
To walk that final mile
The children cried, "If we must go on
Moses, without you
Then talk to God just one more time
And tell us what to do"

"Go and climb that mountain, Moses
Climb that mountain now and pray
Climb that mountain now and tell us
What our Lord has had to say"

"Thou shalt have no Gods before me
Is my great command
And thou shalt not make any graven
Image by thy hand
Thou shalt not take my name in vain
If thou would guiltless be
Remember thou to keep the sabbath day
Alone for me

Honor thy father and thy mother
And thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not commit adultery
And thou shalt not steal
Love thy neighbor as thyself
And show thy neighbor peace
Covet not thy neighbor's house
Nor anything that's his"

"Go and climb that mountain, Moses
Climb that mountain now and pray
Climb that mountain now and tell us
What our Lord has had to say

Go and climb that mountain, Moses
Climb that mountain now and pray
Climb that mountain now and tell us
What our Lord has had to say"
