Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes just like Moses

Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Guide me to the new woman who waits
Current, leave me on the banks
By the cottage
Where we will dine with silver cups
And golden plates

Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes just like Moses

I've prepared for my last journey
You know I've worked all my life
To make this basket strong
But a woman alone on a river
She can't stay in the water too long

I've been chilled, I've lost my will
And I've stayed away from rivers
Much too long
I really must stay in this dirty dirty city
Till I found out that my strength was gone

Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes just like Moses
Just like Moses

Make my journey, make it short in space
Let me lose this hardness that I got now, Lord
Water, wash away all traces of hate
I will do what you say
If you just show me how, river

Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes just like Moses
Roll me through the rushes like Moses
Roll me through the rushes
Just like Moses on the Nile

River, river (sail)
River, river (sail)
River, river (sail)
River, river (sail)

    It means to be soft for the right reasons and toward the right people. God will give us a fleshly heart. (ezekiel 11: 19) this is not a weakness but true strength that will be rewarded with pure blessings that only god can give. His rewards will come but we don't have to wait for them. Thank him for mean people who are just hurting taking it out on unsuspecting souls. A minister said people keep doing it because it feels good to them. It won't be you everyday some days it's going to be them and then laugh letting it roll of your back. Just be a light to people and someone prayed that I would be one too.
