Marleys Ghost – Little Moses lyrics

­ Traditional
Away by the river so clear
The ladies were winding their way
When Pharoah's little daughter stepped down to the water
To bathe in the cool of the day.
Before it was dark, she looked in 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 blue, so blue,
The infant was lonely and sad.
She took him in pity and thought him so pretty,
Then 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 waters so clear, so clear,
They carried that beautiful child.
To his own tender mother, sister and brother
Little Moses looked happy and smiled.
His mother, so good, done all that she could
To raise him and teach him with care.
His mother, so good, done all that she could
To raise him and teach him with care.
Away by the sea that was red, so 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 up on a mountain so high,
The last one that he ever did see.
With Israel victorious, his hope was most glorious,
He'd soon over 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.
