Man ignored what God had said; fearful judgement came.
Massive waters swept away every being with breadth ;
Not a trace of life remained; everywhere was death.
Noah was a patient man, toiled a hundred years,
Built the Ark to Godís great plan, Ďere the rain appeared.
Be like Noah, heed His word!! watching all the signs;
Looking to the coming Lord, at the end of time.
Scoffers mock the coming King, saying--- ďWhere is HE??
All is as its always been ,and will always be.Ē
This they wilfully forget--- God created all,
And He sustains the whole world yet: Hisí the final call.
Judgment Day will surely come, just as night and day;
Allís committed to Godís Son: itís the Fatherís way.
Are you safely in the Ark, certain and secure?
All outsideís infernal dark--- deathís abode for sure!!
Be a patient man, though tried, trusting Jesus Christ;
Heís the Ark that God provides; He alone gives life.
Do not fret nor be afraid; keep your focus clear;
Though it looks like He delays, He is very near!!
Saints of ages past endured, pressing straight ahead,
Knew His promises were sure, trusted all He said:
Itís no different today: let us persevere!!
Look to Christ; He is the Way!! Soon He will be here!!
