How Big Is a Man?

A man’s no bigger than the way

He treats his fellow man!

This standard has his measure been

Since time itself began!

He’s measured not by tithes or creed,

High-sounding though they be,

Nor by the gold that’s put aside

Nor by his sanctity!

He’s measured not by social rank,

When character’s the test;

Nor by his earthly pomp or show

Displaying wealth possessed!

He’s measured by his justice, right

His fairness at his play;

His squareness in all dealings made

His honest, upright way.

These are his measures, ever near

To serve him when they can;

For man’s no bigger than the way

He treats his fellow man.
