Lyric discussion by gturmindright 

I think the obvious reference is Moses' mother putting him in a basket and sending him down the river. She was faithful and correct. He was part of God's plan. This could also parallel a mother letting go of her son or daughter as they go off on their own to become adults to fulfill whatever God's plan for them is. The biggest takeaway is that God comes first, your faith first, even before your children.
