Heaven Is Not Reached
in a Single Bound

By: J. G. Holland

Heaven is not reached in a single bound,
But we build the ladder by which we rise
from the lowly earth to the vaulted skies,
And we mount to the summit round by round.

I count this thing to be grandly true:
That a noble deed is a step towards God----
Lifting the soul from the common clod
To a purer air and a broader view.
