Some seem to think it a myth or a fable, but those who
Have faith are able to believe and find it true…even history
Has proven it actually happened.
In the land of Nod east of Eden, a fugitive and vagabond
Was cast in a land forbidden. Cain had been cursed for
His brother’s death.
Mingling with the heathen, partaking of their evil ways,
His seed prospered. People had become corrupt, God’s
Mercy had striven,”return to my grace and be forgiven”
But they would not heed the warning, until God visited
With a flood. The rain had fallen, filling valleys and plains.
People pleading “open the door of your ark that we may
But it was too late, only Noah and his family were saved.
For forty days they rode the tumultuous waves. When
The doors of this boat were opened, Noah and his
Family were commanded to multiply, but then the
Land was filled once again with men filled with evilness
Fearing another flood they gathered together “we must
Build a city and a tower, for perhaps another flood may
Come upon us. They gathered together on the tableland
The whole earth was of one language and speech and they
Easily spoke to one another. There they built the tower
Called ‘Babel’ large and tall, reaching to the sky, hoping
From earth to reach the heavens.
God looked down one day and knew if He didn’t constrain
These people they would surely have their way. And so
he brought confusion upon them. These tradesmen
Were all very good, but when one man needed clay he
Was given a pail, when one needed mortar he was
Given nails, and bricks were needed he was handed sticks.
Their speech was all mixed up, not understanding.
They became angry and railed against each other.
And all the people were scattered over all the earth speaking
In different tongues!
