Miriam Mary Don't you weep

Oh Mary Don't You Weep (Soul Stirrers version-Miriam’s song)


Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn

Oh, Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn

Pharaoh's army already got drowneded

Mary, don't you weep

When I was a boy long ago 

I read a story that moved me so

About the people in bondage you see

Moved from Egypt wanted to flee

A man got a message from above

It said, go free the people that I love

Find the king and knock on his door

Tell him to let my people go


The king got angry and didn’t agree

But finally he set the people free

But changed his mind on a whim

Gathered his men and said “After them!” 

He finally caught them on the banks of the sea

The people called on the Power that be

You may not believe this but no time lost 

The water rolled back and the children crossed

But when the king tried to cross with his men

The water quickly rose back again
