"The Ten Commandments" as written by and Lew Dewitt....
Moses led God's children out to find the promised land
And on the way he stopped each day and looked to Heaven and
Asked God for help as he could not withstand the task alone
And then one day he looked away and thereby lay a stone
God said write upon this stone these words I say to you
And if you all obey My rules I'll see you safely through
God opened Heavens doors and then He guided Moses hand
And said go and tell My children these are My Commands

Go and climb that mountain Moses
Climb that mountain now and pray
Climb that mountain now and tell us
What our Lord has had to say

Thou shall have no gods before Me is My first Command
And thou shall not make any graven image by thy hand
Thou shalt not take My name in vain and thou wilt guiltless be
Remember thou to keep the Sabbath day alone for Me
Honor thy father and thy mother and Thou shall not kill
Thou shall not commit adultery and Thou shall not steal
Love thy neighbor as thyself and show thy neighbor peace
Covet not thy neighbor's house nor anything that's his

Go and climb that mountain Moses
Climb that mountain now and pray
Climb that mountain now and tell us
What our Lord has had to say

Moses showed these words of God to all the children there
They pulled up stakes and headed out to find the Promised Land
That Moses had described to them and told of comforts there
The children of oppression thought they'd not find anywhere
But they were soon to part from him and push alone awhile
For it was never meant for him to walk that final mile
The children cried as we must go on Moses without you
Then talk to God just one more time and tell us what to do

Go and climb that mountain Moses
Climb that mountain now and pray
Climb that mountain now and tell us
What our Lord has had to say

Go and climb that mountain Moses
Climb that mountain now and pray
Climb that mountain now and tell us
What our Lord has had to say
