As great as the love he bears,
As great as the values he redeems,
And the happiness he shares.
A man is as great as the thoughts he thinks,
And the work he has attained,
At the fountain at which his spirit drinks,
And the insight he has gained.
A man is as great as the truth he speaks,
As great as the help he gives,
As great as the destiny he seeks,
As great as the life he lives.
