Theme Song for Moses
We're beginning a new series on the life of Moses. I'm looking for a song to use throughout the series that relates either to Moses specifically or to some of the strong themes of his story like provision, obedience, etc.
thinking out loud here:
There was a song many years back called the Song of Moses. If I remember correctly it probably wouldn't be of much use to you though. I don't know.
Also, there might be something to pull from the Prince of Egypt soundtrack? Maybe.
I know you're probably looking for something more specific and helpful but that's about all I can think of off the top of my head.
swing low .... sweet chariots ....
Isn't that about Elijah? Although, there are a few good spirituals about Moses that I have thought of using.

Sorry, it's one of those mornings. I know you need a REAL answer.
Pharoah, pharoah...oooohhh...let my people go.
uh....I've still got nothing.
Pharoah, pharoah rocks!
Jason Upton's "Freedom" is a great one.
Indeed. I forgot about the Upton tune, Freedom. Pretty cool song.
I think you could tweak some cool arrangements.
The song with "let my people go..." as a lyric is called "Go Down Moses." It's a Louis Armstrong song, if I remember.
"Days of Elijah" mentions Moses as well.
"Show Me Your Glory" by Third Day is a great song relating to a specific time in the life of Moses. (Exodus 33) I think I would definitely use that.
There are also several modern versions of the Song of Moses (Deut 32.)
Thanks for the suggestions! Keep 'em coming!
"Show Me Your Glory" is a song we've used before and something I thought about to use when we talk about Moses encounter with God on the mountain.
