The Ark of Salvation: From Deluge to Deliverance


I'm forgiven and healed by an und'served favor,
Graciously accepted by the Loving Savior;
Redeemed from the enemy, I'm a slave no more
For all my chains are broken by their Conqueror.

For I would have drowned in the flood of worldliness
And would have been crushed by the waves of sinfulness
Until I was rescued by the Ark of His grace,
‘Til I was lifted up by His lovingkindness.

O the Ark of salvation, which carried me through
The brokenness and guilt to a life that is new,
You saved me from the lies and gave me what is true
And lead me with love ‘til You bring me back to You!

So I choose Your righteousness - forsake rebellion;
I choose Your lordship, O Holy and Blessed Son!
You are my Only God, my life's Only Reason,
O my Belov'd Christ, the Ark of my salvation!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is a 'commentary' poem on my latest devotion, Genesis 6: 11-18; Hebrews 11: 7, and Ephesians 2: 8, where I found out that Noah's ark was a type of salvation by God's grace/unmerited favor through faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 3: 22) .
