After the Flood, all the people on Earth,
Spoke only one language to each other at first.
The people were selfish and wanted their fame.
They ignored God and failed to honor His name.
They made bricks and proceeded to build a large tower.
Desiring to be famous — they’d not talk of God’s power.
The goodness of GOD they no longer spoke of,
Only their OWN name and power…self-love!
God came down to see the selfish things they had done:
Their self-centered ways — there would be more to come.
In an effort to save them from sins so much worse,
God confused their one language and all of their words.
Over vast lands, God scattered the people once more,
So they would have families — descendants galore!
