"And as it was in the day of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all" (Luke 17:26,27).
There was a norm in Noah's day
Before God's judgment came
That we can see now on display,
Disturbingly the same.
The normalcy of eating, drinking,
And marriage is not odd.
The problem is the way of thinking
That mocks the truth of God.
Beware, lest this world's normalcy
And vain imagination,
Distract you from eternity
And need of God's salvation!
O Lord, as Noah found Your grace
Before that fearful storm,
So may Your truth in us replace
In us this world's norm!
