“I can’t remember in detail how it all came about.
I found myself inside never wanting back out.
The rugged and sturdy beams of solid wood are strong.
They’ve been tested, never bested suffering long.
This mighty ship is relentless and tenacious heading to God’s land.
Stubborn and unchanging like her captain who leads us by his hand.
I may stumble and fall as the waves crash against the walls.
But pray my soul to keep and always heed my captain’s call.
Ark of salvation guide us safely through life’s storms
Ark of salvation in dead of winter keep us warm
Ark of salvation though you be battered and tried
Ark of salvation pillar of truth you will never die”
