God, Noah, and the Flood
A man known to his loyalty, Noah,
has brought the cubits out of his foot.
He made a boat carrying his old mana,
yelling all to men careless of ruth.
God told him to build an ark,
and to go inside, to keep alive, .
God's wrath is made for the wicked heart
and every single part will take collide.
Obedience made his family alive,
every beast he chose for God's allot.
No one refused, neither he nor his wife,
the anger of God to man's wicked thought.
In the desert, You raise the water,
from the clouds, You let it rain.
Furrows in the river rose higher,
from the land to make it drain.
The heaven's cried in anger of God,
the earth was cursed, justice with wrath.
Oh, the wickedness of men died in the flood,
every creature befouled ceased in their path.
After all have done, Noah came down.
He built the altar to make an offering.
God knew it and have made it found,
the pleasing aroma takes to approving.
The promise of God to cease the flood,
made a rainbow as the sign of the covenant.
Forever He promised to let them grow
until the end of the existence of the world.
