Enoch, Seventh From Adam

Enoch the father of the long-lived Metuselah
Surely ended his earthly sojourn with a Selah
He lived for three hundred and sixty five years
Each year of his life is a day in our life’s year

He was the seventh generation from Adam
And seven is completion, rest from all bedlam
Thus Enoch was the seal of his epoch and age
A type, an example for the end of this age

A sage he was, for he walked with God
Like the wise men in every age and clime
His life so pleased His Maker in his time
He walked as he surely ought
And then suddenly he was not

God took him, a secret catching away
While evil on the earth began to hold sway
Later Noah was to swim against this tide
But to be like Enoch we must truly decide

He prophesied about the Second Coming
The Lord coming with the saintly thousands
Saved through the ages-blood washed bands
He was translated, to speak a new language
The earthly Rapture preacher now turned a page

To sing redemption’s story in heaven
We too can can join Enoch’s blessed train
If we please God by forfeiting sin’s leaven
Thus escaping the flood of tribulation’s pain

If we love His blessed appearing, now nearing
Our voices will join in the celestial adoring
