about

Finally. A Gospel song I can relate to.

Dedicated to the street preaching couple at the corner of Clairbourne and Elysian Fields every now and again. Wife reads the line, husband yells through the megaphone.

lyrics

God said “Noah build an Ark”
I’m gonna drown these wicked lands.
God said “Noah build an Ark”
Drown every beast and child and man
Build a boat he called an “Ark”
And with your kin you must embark
On this boat He called an “Ark”

Noah had him three grown sons
Worked on the Ark each everyone
Noah had him three grown sons
Toiled day and night till it was done
With three sons was Noah blessed
These sons to join his holy quest
Named Shem, Ham and Japheth

Then 2 by 2 they came onboard
Way out across from distant lands
Then 2 by 2 they came onboard
From the forest and the sands
2 by 2 they came onboard
All to join the Holy horde
2 by 2 they came onboard

40 days and 40 nights
Way out on the stormy seas
40 days and 40 nights
No dry land could be seen
40 days and 40 nights
To the promise, he clung tight
40 days and 40 nights

And Noah got that Rainbow sign
Across the sky its colors shine
God gave us a Rainbow sign
So set it well upon your mind
When we see that Rainbow sign
It signifies the love divine
Love and peace to be enshrined
