Mike Seeger - Little Moses lyrics

Away by the waters so blue,
The ladies were windin' their way,
And Pharoah'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 a sweet infant was there.
Before it was dark,
She opened the ark,
And found a sweet infant was there.

And away by the waters so clear,
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 the nurse that was near.
She called him her own,
Her beautiful son,
And sent for the nurse that was near.


And away by the river so blue
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.

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 safely crossed
While Pharoah's host
Was drownded in the waters and lost.
The Jews safely crossed
While Pharoah's host
Was drownded in the waters and lost.

And away on the mountain so high,
The last one that ever might see,
While Israel victorious,
His hope was most glorious,
For he'd soon o'er the Jordan be free.
When his labors did cease,
He departed in peace,
And he rested in the heavens above.
When his labors did cease,
He departed in peace,
And he rested in the heavens above.
