Ten Plagues Song

Teaching Help 009I have had several people requesting the words to the Ten Plagues Song that I mentioned in an earlier post about “Song Charts”.  This originally came from Idea Shop Magazine published from Gospel Advocate.

The tune is to “The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rock”.  You sing the chorus after each verse.

Ten Plagues Song

1-God turned the water in the river to blood.  The fish all died and stunk in the mud. The Lord said, “Let my people Go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

Chorus- Oh, the plagues came down; the Egyptians cried!  Moses had Aaron by this side.  God was their one and only guide, but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

2-Out of the river frogs did pour, Jumped in the beds and ovens and floor. The Lord said “Let my people go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

3- Aaron struck the dust of the ground.  The dust turned to lice and swarmed all around.  The Lord said, “Let my people Go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

4- Then came the swarms of the nasty flies, Filled people’s houses and buzzed in their eyes. The Lord said, “Let my people Go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

5- Then on the animals disease did creep, killed the cattle donkeys and sheep.  The Lord said, “Let my people Go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

6- Moses scattered dust of ashes in the air.  Boils broke out in sores everywhere.  The Lord said, “Let my people Go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

7- Thunder rolled and hail rained down.  Mixed with fire that darted to the ground.
The Lord said, “Let my people Go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

8- A strong east wind brought locusts to the scene, covered the earth ate everything green. The Lord said, “Let my people Go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

9- Three days passed when they could not see.  Egypt was dark and black as could be. The Lord said, “Let my people Go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

10-Then one night all of Egypt cried. God passed through and the first born died.
The Lord said, “Let my people Go” but Pharaoh still said, “No”.

Final Chorus:
Oh, the plagues came down; the Egyptians cried!  Moses had Aaron by this side.  God was their one and only guide, And Pharaoh finally said, “GO”!

  • Hello, can I ask where I can find the numbers of 10 plagues you used on the picture above? I’d love to use that for my nursery class in church. Thank you so much..
