Most patient of all woman, unbeloved,
Yet ever toiling for thy husband's grace,
Methinks I see thee, with thy downcast face,
Pondering on tasks that should not be reproved.

For seven long years their tents were not removed,
And Leah work'd for Jacob all the while,
And yet she hardly got a sullen smile, -
So good a wife, and mother duly proved.

Yet sore it must have been to see her mate
Rising at morn to work, and working late,
And know he work'd so hard to get another;

And yet she bore it all, in hope to be,
What her sweet offspring was, by God's decree,
The better Eve, the second Adam's mother.
