Away by the water so blue
The ladies were winding their way
And Pharaoh's little daughter
Stepped down to the water
To bathe in the cool of the day
And before it was dark she looked in the ark
And found the sweet infant was there
And before it was dark she looked in the ark
And found a sweet infant was there

Away by the river so clear
She carried that beautiful child
To his tender mother his sister and brother
Little Moses looked happy and smiled
And she called him her own her beautiful son
And sent for a nurse that was near
And she called him her own her beautiful son
And sent for a nurse that was near

Away by the sea that was Red so Red
Little Moses the servant of God
Before him subsided the seas were divided
As upward he lifted his rod
And the Jews safely crossed while Pharaoh's host
Was drowned in the waters and lost
And the Jews safely crossed while Pharaoh's host
Was drowned in the waters and lost


Away on a mountain so high
And the last one that he ever might see*
To Israel victorious his hopes were most glorious
He'd soon over Jordan be free
And 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
