Moses

A man and a prophet
Moses is his name
one called by God
his life never again the same

He was a son of a hebrew
his mother left him in a basket
Pharaoh's daughter found him
but God made him his prophet

Moses fled for his life
after killing an Egyptian
God appeared at the burning bush
to lead him from his sin

God challenged his prophet
to bring his people out
from the burdens of Egypt
but Moses was full of doubt

Aaron became his mouthpiece
to be Moses partner in mission
but the people always grumbled
so God was grieved with their sin

But God then divided the red sea
so Moses led the people through
with the waters falling on the Egyptians
God's promises are always true

When Moses was up Sinai
meeting God face to face
receiving the Ten Commandments
the people were spurning God's grace

They pleaded with Aaron
for a god to worship
so melting all their jewels
they really lost their grip

So Moses seeing all of this
his anger was in full cry
the commandments crashed on the ground
and his heart just wanted to die

Moses life was so full
but not reaching land of promise
only seeing from Pisgah's top
to this all Moses did miss

Moses died being 120 years
buried in Moab's land
but nobody knows where
but on resurrection day he will stand
