Lyrics

Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
And he landed high and dry

The Lord looked down from His window in the sky
Said, "I created man but I don't remember why
Nothing but fighting since creation day
I'll send a little water and wash 'em all away

" The Lord came down to look around a spell
And there was Mister Noah behaving mighty well
And that is the reason, the Scriptures record
That Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord

Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
And he landed high and dry

The Lord said, "Noah, there's gonna be a flood
Theres gonna be some water and there's gonna be some mud
So take off your hat, Noah
Take off your coat
Get Ham, Shem, and Japheth and build yourself a boat

" Noah said, "Lord, I don't believe I could
" The Lord said, "Noah, get some sturdy gopher wood
Never know what you can do till you try
Build it fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high."

Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
And he landed high and dry

Noah said, "There she is. There she is, Lord."
The Lord said, "Noah, it's time to get aboard
Take of each creature a he and a she
And, of course, Missus Noah and your whole family

" Noah said, "Lord, it's getting mighty dark."
The Lord said, "Noah, get these creatures on the ark
" Noah said, "Lord, it's beginning to pour
" The Lord said, "Noah, hurry up and shut the door."

Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
And he landed high and dry

The ark rose up on the bosom of the deep
And after forty days, Mister Noah took a peek
Said, "We're not moving, Lord. Where are we at?
" The Lord said, "You're sitting right on Mount Ararat

" Noah said, "Lord, it's getting mighty dry
" The Lord said, "Noah, see my rainbow in the sky
Take all your creatures and people the earth
But be sure you aren't more trouble than you're worth."

Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
And he landed high and dry
