    He rear’d to God an altar there,
      And offer’d sacrifice,
    And kneeling with his family,
      To heaven did lift his eyes.

    And God was pleased with Noah’s praise,
      And witnessed from above
    The offering which in faith he made,
      And blest him with His love.

    Jehovah said—­“I will no more,
      Destroy or curse the ground,
    But will display my love and grace,
      Wherever life is found.”

    How tender, loving is the Lord,
      Whose anger does not burn
    Forever ’gainst the sons of men,
      But calls them to return.

    He says to men—­“Repent and live,
      And all my law obey,
    And I your strength and hope shall be,
      Through all life’s devious way.”

    O! sacrifice to God in faith,
      And all your sins confess,
    And with the riches of His love,
      He will your spirits bless.

    For blood of bulls, or lambs or goats,
      Jehovah does not care,
    But bring the offering of your hearts,
      With humble earnest prayer.


The bow in the clouds.

    Jehovah now a covenant made,
      That He would bring no more
    A flood of water o’er the earth,
      As He had done before.

    The nations now should prove His love,
      His truth and power divine;
    His attributes o’er all the earth,
      With glory bright do shine.

    His mercy hath no bound but truth,
      And all His works do prove,
    Unto the sons of men abroad,
      His constant, perfect love.

    He set the beauteous Bow on high
      With many colours bright,
    To show His covenant with men,
      Was faithful, gracious, right.

    It hung in heaven, upheld by God,
      And arch’d the distant gloom,
    And bent on either side to earth,
      In bright and graceful form.

    This covenant Jehovah keeps,
      Forever faithful, true;
    For when the rains are o’er, then high
      The rainbow comes in view.

    Whene’er we gaze upon its form,
      And note its colours fair;
    Our hearts should be inspired toward God,
      With love and praise and prayer.

    He gives the sun to warm the earth;
      He sends the healthful shower,
    And saves us always, through His grace,
      By His almighty power.
