“Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” GEN 6-8
Old Noah did not wait until
The rain showed signs of falling,
He started straight away to build the ark,
Did not shun the Master’s calling.
So, he faithfully planned and laboured
In spite of all the jeers,
Safeguarding his dear family,
Striving to allay these fears.
The animals came in two by two,
It was almost like they knew,
Though his friends laughed at the idea
But his enthusiasm grew.
May we trust though we can’t understand
Tragedy, fear, turmoil and strife,
We too can build by faith and find
New meaning to this life.
