    [Greek text which cannot be reproduced]

    O well for him who lives at ease
    With garnered gold in wide domain,
    Nor heeds the splashing of the rain,
    The crashing down of forest trees.

    O well for him who ne'er hath known
    The travail of the hungry years,
    A father grey with grief and tears,
    A mother weeping all alone.

    But well for him whose foot hath trod
    The weary road of toil and strife,
    Yet from the sorrows of his life.
    Builds ladders to be nearer God.
