The Worth Of A Man

Donít measure a man by his bank account
Or the cut of his tailored suit,
Donít measure his worth by his fancy car
Or the fact that some think he looks cute;
But measure a man by the way he acts
And how he treats his fellow man,
Measure his worth by a kindly thought
Or the friendly shake of his hand.

Donít measure a man by the size of his house
Or not by the places he goes,
Donít measure his worth by the social page
Or the things that you think he knows;
But measure a man by the friends he has
And the way that he treats them so,
Measure the feelings close to his heart
And youíll find what heís worth to you.

Donít measure a man by the price of his gifts
Or how many he gives away,
Measure the good feelings you get from him
And the smile that he sends your way;
And measure instead the warmth of his heart
And one thing I am certain of Ė
Youíll find the true worth of a man
Can only be measured by love.
