The Prince of Egypt- River Lullabye (Amy Grant)

This song sounds like a typically lullabye. Very quiet, serene, and melodic. I like it! It's in a very simple typical pop song form with Two verses, a sung bridge, an instrumental bridge, and then Verse 1 again modulated up. This song is sung to Moses by his mom right before she leaves him in the river so he won't be killed by Pharaoh. In this movie it is portrayed as sort of a Jewish folk melody, but it doesn't really sound like that. Later in the movie it's a HUGE plot point because it helps Moses discover his identity as a Hebrew and his role in saving his people. Really a good song. :-)
