First Line: We never know how high we are
Last Line: For fear to be a king.
Subject(s): Religion; Theology


WE never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies.

The heroism we recite
Would be a daily thing,
Did not ourselves the cubits warp
For fear to be a king.
