A Hymn: She Had Compassion On Him

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

We Speak Of The Realms Of The Blest - Blessed - Christian Hymn

The Composed Song

1. When King Pharaoh of Egypt land

Saw that the children of Israel increased

And have also waxed ‘xceeding mighty

He deliberated with the midwives

2. A new law which he gave to them

In that when they do work of midwives

Even unto the Hebrew women

They should kill all males that’s given birth to

3. Bu the midwives feareth the Lord

And did not as King commanded

But the male children they have saved

That Hebrew women gave birth to

4. And when Amram has come of age

He got married to Jochebed

And God blessed even their marriage

They have male and female children

5. One of the children they give birth to

Is a male child that is very good

For three months the child was hidden

After this they can’t hide him again

6. So the King ‘ll not kill the child

They made an ark they put him there

They put him by the river brink

As his sister stood afar off

7. The river that daughter of Pharaoh

Used to go to wash herself is this

As she wants to wash herself in river

They saw the ark by river side

8. She sent her maids to go and fetch it

When they brought it to her she sees it that

A child has been placed inside of it

And also that the child crieth

9. As she saw that the child crieth

She even had compassion on the child

She employed a nurse for the child

That nursed up the child until he grew

10. He ‘ven christened the child Moses

And the child also became her son

This Moses ‘ld become great prophet

Who delivered ‘Srael from Egypt
