Midweek Hymn: NCH #572 Let My People Go!

This week’s Midweek Hymn is “When Israel Was in Egypt’s Land — Let My People Go!” In the New Century Hymnal it’s 572 (with 4 verses). In Hymnary.org it’s page https://hymnary.org/hymn/LUYH2013/42 with 5 verses. I’m doing 5 verses, so NCH folk will need to repeat one of the verses.

This hymn is chosen for today because it foreshadows Rev. Well’s coming Corona Sabbath 26 reflection based on the story of the Hebrews crossing the Red Sea: Exodus 14:19-31.

“The Egyptians are drowned. What do we have to let go of, what has to be destroyed, so that we can be truly free?” — Rev. Wells
