Lionel Cartwright - The measure Of Greatness Lyrics


Well I heard an old story about a soldier at war
Who believed that his brothers were worth fighting for
And knowing the cost, well aware of the price
For the freedom of others he laid down his life

CHORUS:
Oh Lord let my life seek higher an aim
Than worldly ambition, fortune and fame
For greatness is measured by not what we take
But only by that which we've given away

Well this selfless young soldier made me just stop and think
I began to consider what makes a man great
And I thought of my life in the light of this man
And it made me ashamed of the man that I am

Oh Lord let my life seek higher an aim
Than worldly ambition, fortune and fame
For greatness is measured by not what we take
But only by that which we've given away

There are men of great power and great billionaires
And superstars lifted up high in the air
But for me the young soldier put it all into view
Those truly great ones are precious and few

Oh Lord let my life seek higher an aim
Than worldly ambition, fortune and fame
For greatness is measured by not what we take
But only by that which we've given away
