NOAH'S ARK




When forty days’ incessant rain,
O’erwhelmed a world of sinful men,
One single ark the floods outbraved,
And a distinguished remnant saved.


Here God preserved a chosen few,
To people the whole earth anew;
And here, dear Saviour, we may see
A type significant of thee.


In times of danger and distress,
Thou art our Ark, our hiding place;
There we in perfect safety dwell,
Nor fear the rage of earth and hell.


When big with wrath, the tempest roar,
We in thy promise rest secure;
Baptism saves but as a sign,
Its virtue, not its own, but thine.


This sacred rite presents to view,
Thy death and resurrection too;
With thee we die, with thee we rise,
With thee shall reign above the skies.


Water may purify the flesh,
But grace must form the heart afresh;
‘Tis this that makes our nature clean,
And washes from the filth of sin.
