Let me fail before I succeed,
For success better I may savor;
Humble I may still be,
And always in sight may You be!
Let me fall before I rise,
Struggle I must to reach heights;
In honest glory I be crowned,
For what price success that rides on favors?
Let me be poor before I be rich,
My spiritual goal I never lose sight;
The worth of riches I’d better comprehend
And my whole world do not the riches become!
