C.M.

1
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.

2
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.

3
So now men live, and buy, and sell,
And peace and safety cry,
Not knowing, in their unbelief,
That Christ the Lord is nigh.

4
The ark, the ark, and it alone,
Was safety in the flood,
So Jesus, and no other name,
Saves sinners by His blood.

5
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.
