Though Enoch walked with God and wasn’t found
And Noah and his sons alone were saved—
Though Moses freed God’s people long enslaved
And David’s righteous rule was world renowned—
Though Solomon was with God’s wisdom crowned
And Micah prophesied and Peter braved
Imprisonment and Paul’s hope never caved,
Nay, though the thorn’s bite bitter, did abound—
There will be but one hero lifted high
For all to laud and praise at course’s end,
And one alone will all men glorify
Though myriad hosts for such a prize contend.
His name is Jesus, for, though crowned on high,
He only for our sin did condescend.
