Won't You Be Like Moses

Won't you be like Moses
And forsake your Egypt
Better ways are yours if you do
Lay your yoke beside you
"Carry mine" as I do
A lighter load it will be for you

People running all about
Gaining goods and making loot
Vanity the prize of it all
The worldly things that you can take
Can be your one big mistake
Give it back to he who owns the world

And lay your hopes on Jesus
He will give what's needed
Your desire he will give to you
Carnal minded is a death
Spirit filled is the sign of health
The lesson Jesus gave to us all

Written as a song in 1979
