Representative Text

1 Come thou into the ark of the Lord,
For yet there is room for all;
And those who have entered are rescued from sin,
And saved from the enemy's thrall.

Chorus:
He is able, he is willing,
He is waiting now to save from sin's dark flood;
Come thou and all thy house into the ark of the Lord
And be saved from the wrath of God.

2 Come thou into the ark, for the storm
Of evil is raging without;
Oh, haste to the shelter provided for thee,
Flee thou from thy fears and thy doubt. [Chorus]

3 Come thou into the ark of the Lord,
And bring with thee all that thou hast.
The portals are open, - no longer delay
Thy lot with the ransomed to cast. [Chorus]

4 Come thou into the ark and be saved
From all that imperils thy soul;
Be thou of the number the Lord hath shut in
To move to the heavenly goal. [Chorus]
