138. How happy is the pilgrim's lot

How happy is the pilgrim's lot,
How free from anxious care and thought,
(Repeat previous line)
From worldly hope and fear!
Confined to neither court nor cell,
His soul disdains on earth to dwell,
(Repeat previous line for tune 2--Happy Pilgrim)
He only sojourns here.
