Lonnie Donegan - Noah Found Grace in the Eyes of the Lord 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
