VALUES, by                
First Line: The soul is years in making
Last Line: God only knows the soul.
Subject(s): Mankind; Soul; Human Race

THE soul is years in making,
Judge not the whole by part;
We have no way of taking
The measure of the heart;
To other selves is given
Our passing self to scan,
But only God in heaven
Can really judge a man.

By no year's thoughts or actions
Are we to stand or fall,
The soul must fight its factions
And yet may conquer all;
Thus men judge never rightly
For men see not the whole,
Judge not at all or lightly,
God only knows the soul.
