Abraham left behind him,
country, home, and kin,
to heed the call of a lifetime,
and seek what he needed to find,
instead of simply blending in.

Promised to be divinely blessed,
he was continuously put to the test;
and, passing challenges with flying colors,
surpassed all grief and dolor,
turning away from sin.

Yes, Abraham paved the way towards G-d,
so that his descendants might be sound,
in their mind, body, and spiritual endeavors,
and the nations also securely tethered
to the One who calls all to Him.
