NOT to the man of dollars,

Not to the man of deeds, 

Not unto craft and cunning,

Not unto human creeds, 

Not to the one whose passion

Is for a world's renown, 

Not in a form of fashion

Cometh a blessing down.

Not unto land's expansion, .

Not to the miser's chest, 

Not to the princely mansion,

Not to the blazoned crest, 

Not to the sordid worldling,

Not to the knavish clown, 

Not to the haughty tyrant,

Cometh a blessing down.

But to the one whose spirit

Yearns for the great and good; 

Unto the one whose storehouse

Yieldeth the hungry food; 

Unto the one who labors

Fearless of foe or frown; 

Unto the kindly hearted

Cometh a blessing down.
