Lyrics: NOAH'S ARK <br/>– by Adrienne Foster Potter <br/> <br/>The Lord revealed to Noah that there would be a flood, <br/>And rain would fill the whole wide world with water, and with mud. <br/>He told Noah he should build a great big wooden boat <br/>From gopher wood and cedar trees and other woods that float. <br/>Noah and his sons began to cut and saw and build. <br/>The people all made fun of them but they refused to yield. <br/>They built three stories on the ark, with windows and a door; <br/>They were doing something that had not been done before. <br/> <br/>Soon the ark was finished and they loaded their supplies, <br/>And gathered up the animals and birds and butterflies. <br/>They chose the finest horses and the best of cows and sheep, <br/>And beasts as fast as lightening, and those that slowly creep. <br/>Then the rain began to fall from darkened, stormy skies, <br/>And as the roaring thunder clapped the seas began to rise. <br/>The rain came down in torrents for forty nights and days, <br/>As they were shut up in the ark without the sunshine’s rays. <br/> <br/>They worked and fed the zebras, and elephants, and bears, <br/>The cockatoos and kangaroos and lions in their lairs. <br/>Then in the seventh month the ark discovered land and sat <br/>Upon the peaks and mountains in the range called Ararat. <br/>God told Noah it was time to go outside and stand <br/>And let out all the animals to roam across the land. <br/>Then Noah built an altar, to worship God on high, <br/>And God set out a rainbow that glowed across the sky <br/> <br/>CHORUS: <br/>Rain will come and winds will blow, <br/>Rainbows come and rainbows go, <br/>All of this helps us to know <br/>That storms and trials help us grow. <br/>
