Hymn Stanza: Noah’s Ark


Noah's Ark The epistle for the Sixth Sunday of Easter in Series A of the Three Year Lectionary cycle is 1 Peter 3:13-22. Here the apostle connects Noah and the Ark to Christ’s death, descent into hell, and resurrection and to Holy Baptism. I wrote this stanza as part of the 2010 – 2011 hymn of the year for St. Paul Lutheran High School. It can be sung as the middle stanza of the hymn By All Your Saints in Warfare (tune: King’s Lynn) or to a number of other tunes in the 7676 D meter.

We will be singing this stanza this week as I preach this text. I offer it to anyone else who would like to use it in worship or private devotion, asking that those who use it corporately please notify me by comment here or in a private message on Facebook and with notice of copyright attached.

Although satanic darkness
And sin stained all mankind,
You yet kept Noah faithful
In heart and soul and mind.
He built an ark to carry
The remnant of our race.
For him, we praise Your promise
To save us by Your grace.
