looking for a song that is called I cannot stay away or may be titled egypt land

where was i when the Lord saved me
at the gates of death and misery
He picked me up and He set me free
by the blood He shed on Calvary

I cannot stay away; i cannot stay away
i don't want to die in egypt land

please help

Not sure where the song originated, who wrote it, or who actually recorded it, but as it is done in our area is as follows: The first verse and chorus you have is followed by these:                 The old ark angel came a stepping down with a long white robe and a crown in his hand. golden slippers on his feet, to walk that city with the golden streets. I cannot stay away, i cannot stay away. i dont want to die in egypt land. when i cross that river, i'll kneel at his feet. i'll tell him my journey has been mighty sweet. no more heartaches, my troubles are gone. I'll live with Jesus in my brand new home. I cannot stay away. I cannot stay away. I dont want to die in egypt land.
