Noah’s Ark
(Age 10)

People were wicked but Noah was good,
God wanted to save him from the flood.
So he told him how to build an Ark,
And to work every day until it was dark.

He bade him collect two of every kind,
Of all the creatures he could find.
And lead them safely to embark,
Two by two onto the Ark.

When heavy rain in time did pour,
Sinners perished, by the score.
But Noah, his wife, + sons and daughters,
Were safe and sound upon the waters.

With all the creatures great and small,
God helped Noah to save them all.
