THE TALENTS, by            
First Line: We have not all the talents ten received
Last Line: Or word of thine bring smile to some sad face?
Subject(s): Courage; Valor; Bravery


WE have not all the talents ten received,
Few march in the battalion of the best,
Weaponed to win. And few with five are blest,
The millions have but one. Be not aggrieved,
For what thou hast, and with it what achieved,
Are all that counts with Him. He did invest
Thy soul with His own purposeful bequest;
Courage! my comrade, He is not deceived.
Dig from the earth thy talent. Haste to bring
It bright and shining to the market-place,
Or haste thou where the striving legions swing
Into the fields unconquered by the race;
Cannot thine arm support the wounded king,
Or word of thine bring smile to some sad face?
