When God shut Noah in the grand old ark
He put a rainbow in the cloud
When thunders rolled and the sky was dark
God put a rainbow in the cloud.

God put a rainbow in the cloud
(God put a rainbow in the cloud)
Well, it looked like the sun wouldn't shine anymore
God put a rainbow in the cloud.

--- Instrumental ---

Away down yonder in Egypt's sand
God put a rainbow in the cloud
Just to lead his children to the promised land
God put a rainbow in the cloud.

God put a rainbow in the cloud
(God put a rainbow in the cloud)
Well, it looked like the sun wouldn't shine anymore
God put a rainbow in the cloud.

--- Instrumental ---

When they put old Daniel in the lion's den
God put a rainbow in the cloud
Just to prove his promise to the sons of men
God put a rainbow in the cloud.

God put a rainbow in the cloud
(God put a rainbow in the cloud)
Well, it looked like the sun wouldn't shine anymore
God put a rainbow in the cloud...

    God put a rainbow in the clouds to tell us he would not destroy the earth with water again. That is way it will be with fire.

    When things look bad and hopeless for us we should remember gods promise by putting his rainbow in the clouds to remind us.
