Of Whom the World Was not Worthy
By Rebecca Hansen
There men alive on the earth today abhorred and despised by the world
They live their lives in a quiet way-no banners for them are unfurled
They are not gifted in intellect
Nor brilliant in pen or word
But their faces they light of Lord reflect
Their souls with His love are stirred
There men who walk on the earth today
Who bear no distinguishing sign;
They work for money their bills to pay;
Theirs houses and cars are not fine;
They have no letters behind their name
No medals upon their walls,
And they do not appear in earth's hall of fame,
But they're mentioned in heaven's halls.
In a million years,when the world has passed
And with it its pomp and its pride,
Man's fame and wealth will have all been cast
In the graves with the men who died.
The lofty thoughts of the very wise;
With their medals, will ashes be;
But the men with eternity in their eyes Will live for eternity.
