Chapter 8 – A New Dawn for Humanity
The floodwaters ceased their relentless reign,
As Noah watched, no longer touched by pain.
The ark found rest upon Mount Ararat’s crest,
A sanctuary for souls, a place of rest.
From his perch, the patriarch gazed below,
At waters ebbing, revealing earth’s glow.
With a dove released, a sign of peace and hope,
It returned with an olive branch to cope.
Noah knew that God’s wrath had ceased to flow,
A covenant of grace, an unwritten vow.
The ground, once submerged, in beauty appeared,
A fresh world, by the Creator, revered.
With gratitude in his heart, Noah stepped forth,
From the ark’s confines, a new life’s course.
He built an altar, offered a sacrifice,
A gesture of thanks to the heavens’ embrace.
The aroma rose, a fragrant offering,
As God’s favor, a rainbow in the offing.
A promise spoken in the silence vast,
That the world would endure, rebuilt at last.
A covenant of peace, eternally made,
God’s pledge to humanity’s path displayed.
Though the world may change, in faith we believe,
A new dawn for humanity, hearts receive.
The ark’s voyage over, a journey profound,
A world reborn on hallowed ground.
From darkness to light, through storm and strife,
God’s promise emerged, a testament of life.
