Thomas Levi

The Rev. THOMAS LEVI, Aberystwith, through his popular children's monthly--Trysorfa y Plant--has been for years a close friend of the children of the Principality: and among other things he has written several charming hymns for their use. The following is one of his:

The ark upon the deluge

Was Noah's safe abode;

Though sail and helm were wanting,

His Captain then was God:

The Lord was very angry,

And all the world was drowned:

Not even lofty mountains

Could anywhere be found.

Though sail and helm be wanting,

If the ark be our abode,

We'll sing above the deluge--

Our Captain still is God!

Eight souls alone were rescued

To walk the earth again--

Through them a thousand counsels

Wrought out the good of men:

The Babe adored of shepherds

In little Bethlehem,

And Calvary's great Passion--

All came of saving them.

The Lord of Hosts remembered

His covenant of peace;

And He remembered Noah,

And made the waters cease:

A gracious sign He granted,

His faithfulness to prove--

The tender leaf of olive

Brought by the white-winged dove.

Though sail and helm be wanting,

If the ark be our abode,

We'll sing above the deluge--

Our Captain still is God!
