The Life of Moses, Part 1

Baby Moses in a basket
Floating on the Nile -
Rescued by a lovely princess
To become her child.

There's his sister
standing nearby
Watching for her brother,
Then she'll run to get
a nursemaid
Who will be his mother.

Later on we find
young Moses
Living in a palace,
But soon he has to
flee because
His heart was filled
with malice.

The desert is a lonely place
Where Moses goes to live.
It's there he meets
Jehovah God
Who has a plan to give.

"I want you, Moses,"
the Lord says,
"To set My people free.
Return to Egypt now,
at once,
And bring them here
to Me."
