The family united together.
"On that very day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark.." Gen. 7:13 (NIV)

Differences are part of the family,
Sometimes a little sometimes many,
But how distinct in Noah's family,
When all of them fully agree.

In the family, there's always dissent,
It may be from children or parents,
May be from husband or from wife,
There are many conflicts and strife.

So, it was a profoundly amazing wonder,
When all family members united together,
Noah was a man of superb character,
They would follow him whatsoever.

That day was truly a wonderful day,
When in that voyage they embarked,
Not even one had gone astray,
All of them went inside the Ark.

They entered the ark a minority,
Inside only eight but outside many,
But at the end of that fateful journey,
Others perished - they were a majority.

Lord, please strengthen my character,
To keep my family to be together,
The conditions of the world may be dark,
But we'll be with God inside the Ark.
