Little Moses Lyrics

Little Moses (小摩西) - The Carter Family/Preston Young

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 waters 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

 

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

 

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 spirit did cease

He departed in peace

And rested in the Heavens above

When his spirit did cease

He departed in peace

 

And rested in the Heavens above
