It must have been a massive chore
to build an ark so large,
for such a man so elderly,
but man who would take charge.
It must have been a massive job
with those archaic tools,
(no power saws or cordless drills).
He seemed to break all rules.
It must have taken massive trust
to know what it was for -
to dedicate so many years -
to build so far offshore.
It must have taken massive faith
to face a sneering crowd.
To build the ark took many years
while they had laughed out loud.
It must have been a massive feat
corralling animals -
but two by two, they all had come
with elephants and bulls.
It must have been a massive herd -
it must have been a sight -
from large to small they gathered 'round
but all came out just right.
It must have been a massive rain
that flooded all the ground -
and Noah could not save the lost.
God shut the door. They drowned.
It must have been a massive storm -
for forty nights and days.
But when the storm clouds did disperse,
God blesses us His ways...
And bursting forth in massive hues,
a vibrant bowing arc,
was God's terrific rainbow
for Noah and his ark.
