Verse 7

Divinely warn’d of judgments near,

Noah believed a threatening God;

With humble faith, and holy fear

He built the ark, and ’scaped the flood.

He (while the world that disbelieved,

The careless world of sinners, died)

The righteousness of faith received:

Noah by faith was justified.

We too by faith the world condemn,

Of righteousness Divine possest,

Escape the wrath that covers them,

Safe in the ark of Jesu’s breast.
