A tranquil land, when the Earth was but few Refreshing renewal, beginning anew Noah and sons, grew to remain Multiplied nation, so it became

Mountain of Ararat, water subside A move to the east, with fears aside Families therein, travelled afar A settled plain in the land of Shinar

Bold decision, people of prime Building themselves, for such a time A great high tower, apparent worth Be not scattered over all the earth

Work commenced, building the city Bricks and mortar, workers busy Ever-ready, no time to stall Unexpected to cease at all

Might endured, the time it took A displeased father, there to look Ever more sinful, none to repent Ignoring the one who gave them strength

Labouring on, within their own plans Worshipping the work of their own hands A call from high, un-amused Let their languages be confused
