God’s judgments are always right, but He is also full of compassion as Noah would surely testify.

     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. Jesus, lead Thou on 
Till our rest is won; 
And although the way be cheerless, 
We will follow calm and fearless. 
Guide us by Thy hand 
To our fatherland. 

2. If the way be drear, 
If the foe be near, 
Let not faithless fears o’ertake us; 
Let not faith and hope forsake us; 
For through many a woe 
To our home we go. 

3. When we seek relief 
From a long-felt grief; 
When temptations come alluring, 
Make us patient and enduring; 
Show us that bright shore 
Where we weep no more. 

4. Jesus, lead Thou on 
Till our rest is won. 
Heavenly Leader, still direct us, 
Still support, control, protect us, 
Till we safely stand 
In our fatherland.
