HOW can one man, how can all men,
How can we be like St. Paul,
Like St. John, or like St. Peter,
Like the least of all
Blessed Saints? for we are small.
Love can make us like St. Peter,
Love can make us like St. Paul,
Love can make us like the blessed
Bosom friend of all,
Great St. John,--though we are small.
Love which clings and trusts and worships,
Love which rises from a fall,
Love which teaching glad obedience
Labors most of all,
Love makes great the great and small.
