Michael Hedges - Promised Land lyrics

This is the promised land
On this mountain I stand
Read the stone on demand
It's like a burning brand

From his fiery hand
Ten things they command
To every woman, child and man
In this Promised Land

We were the Pharaoh's slaves
'Til god Jehovah forgave
He rose up a pillar of fire
Our freedom his desire

He rose up the Red Sea waves
Our ocean road to pave
To these shores of sand
In this Promised Land
