O the Lord looked down from his window




Oh, the Lord looked down
from his window in the sky,
Said: 'I created man,
but I can't remember why!
Nothing but fighting
since creation day.
I'll send a little water
and wash them all away.'
Oh, the Lord came down
and looked around a spell.
There was Mr Noah
behaving mighty well.
And that is the reason
the Scriptures record
Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord.

Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
And he left him high and dry.



The Lord said: 'Noah,
there's going to be a flood,
There's going to be some water,
there's going to be some mud,
So, take off your hat,
Noah, take of your coat,
Get Shem, Ham, and Japeth
and build yourself a boat.'
Noah said: 'Lord,
I don't believe I could.'
The Lord said: 'Noah,
get yourself some wood.
You never know what
you can do till you try.
Build it fifty cubits wide
and thirty cubits high.'

Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
And he left him high and dry.



Noah said: 'There she is,
there she is, Lord!'
The Lord said: 'Noah,
it's time to get aboard.
Take of each creature
a he and a she,
And of course take Mrs Noah
and the whole family.'
Noah said: 'Lord,
it's getting mighty dark.'
The Lord said: 'Noah,
get those creatures in the ark.'
Noah said: 'Lord,
it's beginning to pour.'
The Lord said: 'Noah,
hurry up and close the door.'

Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
And he left him high and dry.



The ark rose up on
the bosom of the deep.
After forty days Mr Noah
took a peep.
He said: 'We're not moving,
Lord, where are we at?'
The Lord said: 'You're sitting
right on Mount Ararat.'
Noah said: 'Lord, it's getting
nice and dry.'
The Lord said: 'Noah,
see my rainbow in the sky.
Take all your creatures
and people the earth,
And be sure that you're not
more trouble than you're worth.'

Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
Noah found grace
in the eyes of the Lord,
And he left him high and dry.
