Noah & the Ark, poem


"You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.’ Noah did everything just as God commanded him." - Genesis 6:19-22

Noah obeyed God's word
and built the boat God told him to
All the people on earth were destroyed
except for just a few

The few were Noah and his family
because they followed God's way
And did not follow the world's crowd
no matter what they did say

Even though the crowd mocked Noah
and said he was a fool
Noah still obeyed God's word
even when the people were so cruel

When the ark was finished and
the storm clouds gathered dark
Noah and his family
were safe within the ark

It then began to rain and pour
just like God said it would
If only the people would have listened
to Noah when they could

They tried to get into the boat
but were too late in enter in
They could not stay afloat and
perished in their sin

Jesus is our rescue boat
so we would not perish like the rest
Jesus is the way to be saved from our sin
and enter into heaven and be blest

Please listen to God's plea now
before it is too late
If you miss heaven's boat
then hell will be your fate

The only way to be saved is
through faith in Christ's shed blood
The kind of faith that Noah had when
he built the ark before the flood

Jesus gave his life to save you
and rescue you from your sin
Just trust him and ask him to be your savior
and you'll receive your free ticket in

Like Noah, Lord God, help me to be faithful and to trust in You. Amen.
