I am not one of Buchan's heroes nor am I of Shakespeare's swains
I am not one with whom Faust once wept nor have I the unknown tomb
I am not one on whom the world awaits for either word or deed
I am not one whose favour kings would seek or lords my wisdom hear
I am but a man, unknown, unheard, unseen
I am eluded by fame, unknown by fortune, ignored by glory
I am one who each day meets each day's demand
I am but a man, husband, father, friend, and teacher
I am nothing more and nothing less than who I am
I am one of God's own sons
I am content
