Noah's Song

Living by faith I found God's grace in God's eyes
He made my ways prosper
Then came a surprise
He said "Build a boat, as big as can be"
I said "God, you're joking, we're miles from the sea"

Build a, build a, build a, build a
Build a, build a, build a boat
Will it, will it, will it, will it
Will it, will it, will it float

Building the ark I just trusted God's word
A boat in the desert looks so absurd
I said "God I have finished, now what shall I do?"
He said "Collect all the animals, you've just made a zoo"

Catch a, catch a, catch a, catch a
Catch a, catch a, catch a goat
Find a, find a, find a, find a
Find a, find a, find a stoat

Admiring my boat I just worshipped the Lord
He said "It is time now, so get on board"
I said "Lord we are waiting, please send us the rain"
He said "I'll send you so much you won't pray that one again"

Sailing my ship with no harbour in view
Feeding the animals on God's floating zoo
I said "Lord we've been hours, now save us I plead"
He said "Just forty days and the rain will recede"
Just forty days and the rain will recede
Just forty days and the fain will recede
