     1 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged; 2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained; 3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

     4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. 5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.(KJV)

Hymn: WS 756:
Jesus, Lover of My Soul

1. Jesus, lover of my soul, 
Let me to Thy bosom fly, 
While the nearer waters roll, 
While the tempest still is high. 
Hide me, O my Savior, hide, 
Till the storm of life is past; 
Safe into the haven guide; 
Oh, receive my soul at last. 

2. Other refuge have I none, 
Hangs my helpless soul on Thee; 
Leave, ah! leave me not alone, 
Still support and comfort me. 
All my trust on Thee is stayed, 
All my help from Thee I bring; 
Cover my defenseless head 
With the shadow of Thy wing. 

3. Thou, O Christ, art all I want, 
More than all in Thee I find; 
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, 
Heal the sick, and lead the blind. 
Just and holy is Thy Name, 
Source of all true righteousness; 
Thou art evermore the same, 
Thou art full of truth and grace. 

4. Plenteous grace with Thee is found, 
Grace to cover all my sin; 
Let the healing streams abound; 
Make and keep me pure within. 
Thou of life the fountain art, 
Freely let me take of Thee; 
Spring Thou up within my heart; 
Rise to all eternity.
