Sin was everywhere,
Grieving God to despair.
God choose my family to be saved.
He, through me, a new way paved.
Building the Ark against the flood.
The work hard, but had to be done.
This was our salvation,
And for others to come.
God shut the door.
Pairs of animals in my care.
Away from the wickedness.
Away from the fear.
Today, people living on this earth,
Your sin could be gone,
If your salvation is in Jesus – the Cross.
Then God’s will is done.

The movie, “Noah”, has done extremely well around the world. This shows that people are really interested in this. May this create a new interest in a belief of a worldwide flood.
