From the River Born, Tale of Two mothers

from Exodus IV​.​1 by THE ARTIST ONE



This is three tracks into one (only on Band camp)


As I watched you from a distance, I can’t help but have a smile.
Remembering once to hold you, even though a short while.
I know Lord I have given, everything to thee.
This man that was a child, with no name you took from me.
Lord heal my heart, for the tears I cannot hold.
I believe my father’s father and the promise that you hold.
A covenant that keeps me warm in the darkness of the night.
Make my Moses be lord a true guiding light.
For your love is like an anchor that holds me close to shore.
So the tides cannot move me from the love you have in store.
But I.

I cry at night, I cry at night.
So my Moses will never see.
I cry at night, I cry at night,
So my Moses will never see the tears from me.

I remember the waters and the gift they brought to me.
You have grown into a great man this I see in thee.
I know your heart is heavy with questions deep inside.
I pray your God will guild you through the things that will divide.

Soon the time will come young man
A path that you will take young man
A vision you will see young man
Will lead you to the truth young man
So be strong young man
Give your heart to God young man
I will miss you dearly my young man, my young man.
