Crossing the Red Sea



On a warm desert day
Moses worked with the sheep
One ran away
Into a cavern deep.
Moses climbed down and into his sight
In the darkness and shadows, shone a great light
Moses saw against the wall
A bush about four feet tall
but that was not all.
Closer Moses came
To see the bush was in flame!
With leaves perfectly green,
What could this mean?
He hoped to learn,
How the bush with flames
Did not burn.
As he stepped forward on the sand
Staff in hand
A voice called to command
“Moses! Take the sandals off your feet
This is Holy Land
on which we meet.”
“Who are you Lord?”
Moses called into the flame
“I am the Great I am!” said the Lord
“That is my Holy name”

“Moses Set my people free from Egyptian hands
bring them to a Promised Land!"

Moses argued “I’m not your guy.
I am slow of speech, I’m shy!
God, you’ve surely made a blunder.”
…..But the voice replied, loud as thunder:

You will go!
And they will know I’m at your side.
I have prepared signs
Follow as I command:
“Drop your staff onto the sand.”
Moses didn’t know what God had planned
And thought there was a mistake
But when the staff fell from his hand
it transformed into a snake!
then when he grabbed it by the tail
Again hard as a rail
was his staff.
God said “This is a sign on their behalf”
You do not go alone. On me you depend.
My power will be shown, It is YOU I will send.
I am your victory!
Have no fear, I will be near,
Moses….set my people free!”

"Reed sea" not "Red sea" - thats a mistranslation.
