GLORY of Greece that arose, transfiguring mountain and shore
And fields and cities of men, then faded and was no more;
Glory of Rome, earth-wide, that seemed immortal, and cast
All glory else in the shade, but changed, in the end, and passed;
Glory of sceptres and thrones, glory of sword and of song;
Glory of gold that beguiles the heart of the heedless throng:
Oh, what are these glories beside the glory of one lone Man,
Who dreamed not of glory, but wrought, in trial and sorrow, his plan
For helping the needs of the world, for healing the wounds that smart,
For lifting the vision of God to the burdened and breaking heart!
Whose glory it was to serve, no matter what men might say;—
The glory that grows with the years and never can pass away!
