Like as the days of Noah were,
So shall they also be,
When Christ, the Son of man, shall come,
Whom every eye shall see.
Before the flood, they ate, they drank,
And married day by day;
And knew not till the flood was come,
And took them all away.
So now men live, and buy, and sell,
And peace and safety cry,
Not knowing, in their unbelief,
That Christ the Lord is nigh.
The ark, the ark, and it alone,
Was safety in the flood,
So Jesus, and no other name,
Saves sinners by His blood.
All in the ark were very safe,
For God had shut them in;
So all Christ’s sheep are in His hand,
And none can pluck from Him.
