Hush now, my baby/Be still love, don't cry/Sleep like you're rocked by the stream/Sleep and remember my last lullaby/So I'll be with you when you dream

~ Yocheved as she prepares to send baby Moses adrift in his basket
River, O, River / Flow gently for me / Such precious cargo you bear / Do you know somewhere he can be free? / River, deliver him there.
~ Yocheved as she watches the basket drift away
Deliver Us!!!
~ Yocheved's echo

Yocheved is a minor character in The Prince of Egypt. Like her Biblical counterpart, she is the mother of MosesMiriam and Aaron.

She is voiced by the late Ofra Haza, who also sang her part in 17 languages, including her native language, Hebrew. Because of Ofra's beauty, she was also Yocheved's model.

Role in the film

After Pharaoh Seti I worries that the Hebrews will overpopulate and rebel against the Egyptians, he orders his soldiers to take all the newborn Hebrew boys and drown them in the river Nile.

Not wanting her own newborn son to suffer the same fate, Yocheved along with her older children Miriam and Aaron takes him to the river Nile and places him in a basket and sends him down the river to safety. As she does this, Yocheved sings her baby a lullaby.

Yocheved presumbly dies sometime after this. She is later mentioned many years later by a now adult Miriam when she and Aaron reunite with their brother, who had been taken in by Seti and his wife, Tuya and named Moses. Miriam tells Moses that Yocheved had saved his life. When Moses is reluctant to believe Miriam, she sings the same lullaby that Yocheved had sung to Moses as she sent him down the river.
