9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

     11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

     13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. 15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. 17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. 18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. 20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. 21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.

     22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.(KJV)

1. Awake, my soul, to joyful lays 
And sing Thy great Redeemer’s praise. 
He justly claims a song from me,– 
His loving-kindness, oh, how free! 

2. He saw me ruined in the Fall, 
Yet loved me notwithstanding all. 
He saved me from my lost estate,– 
His loving-kindness, oh, how great! 

3. When I was Satan’s easy prey 
And deep in debt and bondage lay, 
He paid His life for my discharge,– 
His loving-kindness, oh, how large. 

4. Through mighty hosts of cruel foes, 
Where earth and hell my way oppose, 
He safely leads my soul along,– 
His loving-kindness, oh, how strong! 

5. When trouble, like a gloomy cloud, 
Has gathered thick and thundered loud, 
He near my soul has always stood,– 
His loving-kindness, oh, how near! 

6. When earthly friends forsake me quite 
And I have neither skill now might, 
He’s sure my Helper to appear,– 
His loving-kindness, oh, near! 

7. Too oft I feel my sinful heart 
Prone from my Jesus to depart; 
But through I have Him oft forgot, 
His loving-kindness changes not. 

8. When I shall pass death’s gloomy vale 
And all my mortal power must fail, 
Oh, may my last, expiring breath 
His loving-kindness sing in death! 

9. Then shall I mount and soar away 
To the bright world of endless day 
And sing with rapture and surprise 
His loving-kindness in the skies.
