Exodus chapter two

1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.
2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slim and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s brink.

Verse 1:
Baby Moses mother put him in a basket and sent him
Up the Nile so he wont be killed by Egyptians
Meanwhile from a distance
Being watched by his sister
To find out what happens as he floats up the river
Pharaoh’s daughter
Came down to bathe in the water
Her maids walking along the riverside saw the
Basket
In the middle of the reeds
She told her grab it
And bring it to me
When she opened it she got to see the child as he weep
Compassionate though she knew
He was a child of the Hebrew
To the daughter of Pharaoh his sister said
Should I find a Hebrew woman
So he can be fed
She told her go
Maidservant called the child’s mother
It’s amazing
To nurse her own child she gave her wages
The child grew
She brought him to Pharaohs daughter
Named him Moses
She said cause I drew him out of the water

Hook:
Moses
Moses, Musa, Thutmos wisdom
Mighty words and deeds he learned from Egyptians
Moses
Raised by the daughter of Pharaoh since a shorty
From a boy to a man
Now Moses is forty

Verse 2:
It came to past in those days Moses was grown
He went out unto the brethren of his own
Looked on their burdens
Spotted an Egyptian
Striking a Hebrew person
Soon the plot thickens
He looks this way and that way
When he saw no one was watching
The Egyptian man he slayed
Killed the man
Hid him in the sand
The second day he beholds two of the Hebrew man
Struggling with each other
Fighting with they hands
He said why strike each other
This one here’s your brother
He said
Who appointed you over the others
As prince
Or someone here to judge us
Do you intend
To kill me like that Egyptian man
Surely this was known
Moses feared and ran
Pharaoh was after his head
So he fled to the land of Midian
The land of Midian

Hook:
Moses

(Exodus 2:15)
15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.

Verse 3:
The priest of Midian had seven daughters
Moses was sitting by a well as they came and drew water
To water their fathers flock
As always
The shepherds came and drove them away
Moses stood up helped them
Gave their flock water
When the daughters
Came to Reuel their father
He said
How is it that you came home so soon today
They said an Egyptian delivered us out of the hands of the shepherds
Drew water for us and watered the flock we just left him
Their father says
Where is he
Call him and bread we may eat
Moses was content to dwell with the man
Gave he
Daughter Zipporah’s hand
She bare him a son
Called him Gershom
A stranger in a strange land
In time king of Egypt died
Israel sighed cause of their bondage
Their cries reached the Most High

Hook:
Moses

(Exodus 2:24-25)
24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
25 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.
