1 When judgment thunders cloud the sky,
And storms are downward hurled,
The ark of God comes floating by
To save a drowning world.
In the ark, in the ark, there is room for you and me,
And a refuge from the overwhelming flood.
’Tis the day of grace, Jesus makes salvation free,
And there’s safety in the ark of God.
2 Upon the billows wide and dark,
By raging tempests tossed,
The Savior throws His precious ark
Wide open for the lost. [Refrain]
3 I’m lost without, I’m safe within,
To wait I can’t afford;
I enter, and there shuts me in
The love of Christ the Lord. [Refrain]
4 The bow of promise spans the sea,
The rolling surges cease;
The heav’nly dove brings back to me
The olive branch of peace. [Refrain]
