ULTIMATE ACHIEVEMENT

The pledge, "I'll do the best I can,"Is common to the speech of man.This promise lacks sincere intentIf, while not voiced, his thoughts presentA claim of weakness kept in mind.Then good intent becomes entwinedWith reservations that supportA host of doubts and fears, and courtA tendency to compromiseWith limitations that arise.

If, when a man shall pledge his best.He has in mind intent to testThe nature of his true estateAs son of God, to regulateHis effort by the truth, its useProvides the means with which to looseDeterrents that beset his thought.When man accepts what God has wrought,And uses gifts with which he's blessed,Achievement truly is his best.
