    The deluge, at th' Almighty's call,
    In what impetuous streams it fell!
    Swallow'd the mountains in its rage,
    And swept a guilty world to hell.


    In vain the tallest sons of pride
    Fled from the close-pursuing wave;
    Nor could their mightiest towers defend,
    Nor swiftness 'scape, nor courage save'.


    How dire the wreck! how loud the roar!
    How shrill the universal cry
    Of millions in the last despair
    Re-echo'd from the low'ring sky!


    Yet Noah, humble, happy saint,
    Surrounded with the chosen few,
    Sat in his ark, secure from fear,
    And sang the grace that steer'd him through.


    So may I sing, in Jesus safe.
    While storms of vengeance round me fall;
    Conscious how high my hopes are fix'd,
    Beyond what shakes this earthly ball.


    Enter thine ark, while patience waits.
    Nor ever quit that sure retreat;
    Then the wide flood, that buries earth,
    Shall waft thee to a fairer seat.
