LITTLE MOSES
Away by the river so clear, the ladies were winding their way
And Pharaoh's little daughter stepped down in the water
To bathe in the cool of the day
Before it was dark she opened the ark
And found the sweet infant was there
Before it was dark she opened the ark
And found the sweet infant was there
And away by the river so blue, the infant was lonely and sad
She took him in pity and thought him so pretty
And it made little Moses so glad
She called him her own, her beautiful son
And sent for a nurse that was near
She called him her own, her beautiful son
And sent for a nurse that was near
[INSTRUMENTAL BREAK]
And away by the river so clear, they carried the beautiful child
To his own tender mother, his sister and brother
Little Moses looked happy and smiled
His mother so good done all that she could
To rear him and teach him with care
His mother so good done all that she could
To rear him and teach him with care
[INSTRUMENTAL BREAK]
And away by the sea that was red, little Moses, the servant of God
While in him confided the sea was divided
As upward he lifted his rod
The Jews they could cross while Pharaoh's host
Was drownded in the waters and lost
The Jews they could cross while Pharaoh's host
Was drownded in the waters and lost
And away on the mountain so high, the last one that ever might see
While in his victorious, his hope was most glorious
He'd soon o'er the Jordan be free
When his labors did cease he parted in peace
And rested in the heavens above
When his labors did cease he parted in peace
And rested in the heavens above
