Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord And He left him high and dry
Noah found grace Oh the Lord looked down from his window in the sky - said "I created people, but I can't remember why! Nothing but fighting since creation day.- I'll send a little water and wash them all away." Oh, the Lord came down and looked around a spell. There was Mr Noah behaving mighty well. And that is the reason the Scriptures record Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord
The Lord said: "Noah, there's going to be a flood. there's going to be some water, there's going to be some mud. So, take off your hat, Noah, take off your coat, get Shem, Ham & Japtheth & build yourself a boat." Noah said: "Lord, I don't believe I could"- the Lord said: "Noah, get yourself some wood. you never know what you can do till you try. build it fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high"
Noah said: "There she is, there she is, Lord!"- The Lord said: "Noah, it's time to get aboard. Take of each creature a he and a she,- and of course take Mrs Noah and the whole family." Noah said: "Lord, it's getting mighty dark."- the Lord said: "Noah, get those creatures in the ark" Noah said: "Lord, it's beginning to pour"- The Lord said: "Noah, hurry up - I'll close the door."
The ark rose up on the waters of the deep. After forty days Mr Noah took a peep. He said: “we're not moving, Lord, Where are we at?" the Lord said: “you're sitting right on Mount Ararat." Noah said: "Lord, it's getting nice and dry."- the Lord said: "Noah, see my rainbow in the sky. Take all your creatures and people the earth, - and be sure that you're not more trouble than you're worth”

John 9 1 As he went along, [Jesus] saw a man blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" 3 "Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life. 4 As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no-one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world." 6 Having said this, he spat on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man's eyes. 7 "Go," he told him, "wash in the Pool of Siloam" (this word means Sent). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing. BLAME – looking backward GRACE – looking forwards
