Here comes the Gospel story of Noah's Ark

When God looked down on this whole world
His heart was heavy and sad
The world He'd made and the man He'd loved
Had all turned wicked and bad

As He looked over His creation
He was grieved by His own plan
But just before He destroyed everything He loved
He found Him a righteous man

Brother Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah was a righteous man
He walked with his God a day by day
Holding to His hand

He worked without ceasin', preached without preachin'
That's a truth that shall ever stand
Brother Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah was a righteous man

Well God said to Noah
"Build a boat and we'll call it an ark
Build it long, deep and wide
I'm gonna tell you before it starts"

"I'm gonna send to you, a two by two
Every good and living thing
But gather up your family and shut the door
'Cause Brother, it's gonna rain"

For forty days and forty nights
The water came a pourin' down
The tears from God Almighty's eyes
Covered everythin' on the ground

Men were screamin', women were cryin'
Noah heard it day and night
But everything on the other side of that door
Disappeared clean out of sight

Brother Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah was a righteous man
He walked with his God a day by day
Holding to His hand

He worked without ceasin', preached without preachin'
That's a truth that shall ever stand
Brother Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah was a righteous man

Alright

And then one day the rain stopped fallin'
And the ark came to a rest
High and dry was ole Brother Noah
On the top of Mount Ararat

Well they opened up the window
And sent the Lord a dove
Well the dove brought back an olive branch
And we all got a bowl of love

Brother Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah was a righteous man
He walked with his God a day by day
Holding to his hand

He worked without ceasin', preached without preachin'
That's a truth that shall ever stand
Brother Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah was a righteous man

Well, Noah was a righteous man
Hey, Noah was a righteous man
