While man in flesh displayed recurrent failure  
Failure of life even in such as Abel,
Failure in faith even in such as Abram,
Failure in honesty in such as Jacob  
Yet there were some whom God could view as faithful  
Enoch so faithful God took him by translation,
Noah so faithful that God desired to save him,
Abraham once restored, and his wife, Sarah  
While others yet could presage God's own Saviour:
The promised Isaac when God, in figure, raised him,
The sapient Joseph as leader of salvation
Administering grace among the nations.
