Mercy on Moses

"The daughter of Pharaoh... saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him...  And she called his name Moses (מֹשֶׁה Mosheh ; "drawing out"): and she said, Because I drew him out of the water" (Exodus 2:5-10).  "Send Thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters" (Psalm 144:7).  "Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable Gift" (2 Corinthians 9:15).   

When Moses was drawn from the water,
It was by Jehovah's compassion
Extended through Pharaoh's own daughter
Through mercy God only could fashion. 

This mercy on Moses we see
By which he was drawn from that river
Reflects how the Lord lovingly
From heaven is moved to deliver. 

The Lord hears the humble who pray
And sends forth His hand from above
To perfectly answer today   
With infinite wisdom and love. 

O Lord, by Your mercy on Moses,
Your kindness to us we can trace! 
You rescued us when we were hopeless
And granted unspeakable grace.
