I long ago left Egypt for the promised land

I long ago left Egypt for the promised land,
I trusted in my Savior, and to His guiding hand;
He led me out to victíry through the great Red Sea,
I sang a song of triumph, and shouted, I am free!

Refrain

You need not look for me, down in Egyptís sand,
For I have pitched my tent far up in Beulah land;
You need not look for me, down in Egyptís sand,
For I have pitched my tent far up in Beulah land.

I followed close beside Him, and the land soon found,
I did not halt or tremble, for Canaan I was bound;
My Guide I fully trusted, and He led me in,
I shouted, Hallelujah! my heart is free from sin!

Refrain

I started for the highlands where the fruits abound,
I pitched my tent near Hebron, there grapes of Eschol found,
With milk and honey flowing, and new wine so free;
I have no love for Egypt, it has no charms for me.

Refrain

My heart is so enraptured as I press along,
Each day I find new blessings which fill my heart with song;
Iím ever marching onward to that land on high,
Some day Iíll reach my mansion thatís builded in the sky.

Refrain
