You've remained in this position for a long, long time.
Freedom comes on one condition, that you change your mind.
Would you turn around and follow me and leave your past behind?
Let me bring you to a land where milk and honey you can find.

I hold the wind in the palm of my hand,
Everything is at my command.

So leave your chains I've told the Pharaoh
Let My people go.
I've taken care of all arrangements,
All you need to know
Is that you are my possession,
And I'm yours forever more,
Let Me bring you to a land where
Living waters ever flow.

I'll make a way through the wilderness,
I'll go before you and give you rest.
So sing a song for your redeemer's
Very close at hand, very close at hand.

Can't run away, we're face to face
With an army in hot pursuit, yeah.
We'll surely die, can You tell us why
Why You brought us to our doom?

Keep your eyes on Me, you will cross the sea,
Just you be silent, I'll bring you victory.

So sing a song for your redeemer's
Very close at hand, very close at hand.

Now you've been wandering in this desert nearly forty years.
Living would be so much better there instead of here.
Are you ready to move on with me and leave behind your fear
As I bring you to that land you can be certain I am here.

I'll make a way through the wilderness,
I'll go before you and give you rest.
So sing a song for your redeemer's
Very close at hand, very close at hand.
