Life Is the Greatest Gift of All
Life is the greatest gift of all
The riches on this earth;
Life and its creatures, great and small,
Of high and lowly birth:
So treasure it and measure it
With deeds of shining worth.
Mind is the brightest gift of all,
Its though no barrier mars;
It seeks creations’s hidden plan,
Its quest surmounts all bars;
It reins the wind, it chains the storm,
It weighs the outmost stars.
We are of life, its shining gift,
The measure of all things;
Up from the dust our temples lift,
Our vision soars on wings;
For seed and root, for flower and fruit,
Our grateful spirit sings.
