Noah found GRACE in the eyes of the Lord ... by FAITH. Abraham by FAITH believed and it was accounted unto Him for righteousness. Hebrews chapter 11, there all died in faith. If you add to the bible and give symbolic notations as substantive truth, then you dilute the message.
There is no power to transform a life by use of symbols ...... only mercy and grace freely given to all who believe.
There is NOT a hymn we sing which diverts from the eternal message of grace and truth.
All to Him I owe (give credit also to the man who baptized you)
Sin hath left a crimson stain,
HE (and your preacher) washed it white as snow.
(if you've been baptized)
