Ella Wheeler Wilcox - I Will Be Worthy Of It

It
I may not reach the heights I seek, 
My untried strength may fail me; 
Or, halfway up the mountain peak
Fierce tempests may assail me.
But though that place I never gain, 
Herein lies the comfort for my pain –
I will be worthy of it.

I may not triumph in success, 
Despite my earnest labour; 
I may not grasp results that bless
The efforts of my neighbour.
But though my goal I never see, 
This thought shall always dwell with me –
I will be worthy of it.

The golden glory of Love’s light
May never fall on my way; 
My path may always lead through night, 
Like some deserted by-way.
But though life’s dearest joy I miss, 
There lies a nameless strength in this –
I will be worthy of it.
