I was living down in Egypt, Afar from Canaan land, Till the Holy Spirit found me, And I moved at His command.
Refrain: I’ve moved, I’ve moved Over into Canaan land; I’ve moved, I’ve moved Over into Canaan, land of milk and honey; I’ve moved, I’ve moved Over into Canaan land, Where love and peace abound, And no carnal thing is found, I’ve moved, I’ve moved.
I was living there in bondage To doubting and despair, But amid the joys of Canaan I can walk as free as air.
I am living on God’s bounty, My needs are all supplied; With His manna, milk, and honey, I am fully satisfied.
In this land of peace and plenty My soul will ever stay; I have moved from darkest Egypt, To return no more that way.
