WHO is the greatest hero?

He of the strongest might? 

Or he that now, and always,

Dares only do the right?

Who is the bravest hero?

He of the sharpest sword? 

Or he that in all places

Dares speak the truest word?

Who is the noblest hero? 

He that rules all the land?

Or he that his own' spirit 

Holds always in command?
