Lyrics

Flee to the ark, in Jesus find
The only refuge for mankind;
Flee for your life, to Jesus bow;
Flee to the ark of safety now.

Refrain

Flee to the ark of safety now;
Flee to the ark, flee to the ark;
Flee for your life, to Jesus bow;
Flee to the ark of safety now.

Flee to the ark, O sinner, haste,
The clouds are gathering o’er the waste;
Flee for your life, to Jesus bow;
Flee to the ark of safety now.

Refrain

Flee to the ark, O quickly fly;
The floods of death are drawing nigh;
Flee for your life, to Jesus bow;
Flee to the ark of safety now.

Refrain

Flee to the ark, why will ye die?
A watery tomb is rolling high;
Flee for your life, to Jesus bow;
Flee to the ark of safety now.
