THE SONG: Moses Heard It
What an astonishing story! In just a few short verses, Scripture introduces us to a baby born at one of the worst times in history, in some of the worst conditions imaginable. The king’s edict has gone out that all newborns like him are to be put to death immediately after they are born. In an act of defiance, the two Hebrew midwives honor God over the king. The baby is hidden in a basket in the bushes by the river, found by an Egyptian princess, returned to be nursed again by his own mother, then adopted into Pharaoh’s household and raised and educated in the palace as an Egyptian prince! This one whose life was supposed to have been snuffed out, was loved and cherished by the very one who had willed his demise! Moses heard the song.
