IT WASN'T RAININ' (WHEN NOAH BUILT THE ARK)

G
Everybody's wondrin' what's up ahead.
                           A              D 
Storm clouds are gathering like the Bible said.
G                            C    G   
We have a shelter that never will fail,
B               D               G
The old ship of Zion's about to sail.

Chorus:
                       Em   C         G
It wasn't rainin' when Noah built the ark,
                                 A                  D
So the rush for the doors didn't start 'til it grew dark.
      G                  Em      C                  D
Don't wait 'til the judgement to give the Lord your heart;
                       D          G
It wasn't rainin' when Noah built the ark.

From the babe in a manger to the cross on a hill,
Jesus made the journey, God's plan to fulfill.
In love He has done what He said He would do, 
So the next move is up to me and you.

Chorus
