The Measure of Life

There always something more important that takes the place of what really matters in Life

There are jobs to do and places to go and we never seem to catch up Enough to get rid
of the strife

The measure of a man is the contents of his soul
This is a blessing more powerful than riches of silver and gold

It is not the strength of his back or knees, but in his capacity to love
That is the true gift from the Lord God above

It is the ability to place another person as his top priority
And be proud to know that he does not always side with the majority

For what is more important in life than our word of bond
That follows us into the Great beyond

It is not the amount of work that we do that really matters
Because we will all stand before the Most High Grand Master

And he will not count the money that we made on earth
But what we did for others, as our true and lasting worth
